Everyone is in need of a form of connection. Well, maybe not everyone. There are those happily removed from everyone and everything. But for the most part people desire and even crave a connection. During pandemic times, even moreso.
The holiday season is starting up. Well, I already saw Christmas decorations before Halloween. People are going to be really excited about the possible warmth and glow from the holidays or they will be severely depressed because the holidays just cannot be all encompassing. Considerations around social distancing, masking, and traveling from location to another add many complications to the holidays. It’s not as if the holidays in the past have been a piece of cake. Many people, before the pandemic, dreaded the holidays. But now, it’s an extreme emotional rollercoaster of chaos.
Yet, in all this, I just want to remind us all that distance doesn’t seperate people; silence does.
