Can We Admit Some Things Are Better Now?

Miles Klee:

There’s a guilt attached to this, of course: People are struggling, unemployed, behind on bills and in some cases sick or dying. How dare I appreciate the benefits of such a catastrophe? Are we allowed to talk about the upside if not everyone is experiencing it?

Boy do I feel that. I feel like I’m in a pod around the planet. Of course, I’m not. And I should maybe spend a little bit more time on earth.

But things will go back to normal” eventually. It’d be nice to take some of what we learned.
