It appears that as a human society we have emerged into the fifth stage of Coronavirus: Acceptance. Denial is virtually impossible now, we no longer have the energy for anger, attempts at bargaining have failed.  Now there is nought to do but to accept our fate as Covid-19 changes the world under the influence of Pluto’s transformative power, and do what we can to facilitate positive changes in our own lives and the life of our communities. ❤️

When this is over, may we never again take for granted
A handshake with a stranger
Full shelves at the store
Conversations with neighbors
A crowded theater
Friday night out
The taste of communion
A routine checkup
The school rush each morning
Coffee with a friend
The stadium roaring
Each deep breath
A boring Tuesday
Life itself.

When this ends
may we find
that we have become
more like the people
we wanted to be
we were called to be
we hoped to be
and may we stay
that way — better
for each other
because of the worst.
