This week, the United States passed 100,000 deaths from Covid-19. Shocking videos ignited tensions across the country, leading to questions about policy, justice, and race relations. Scenes of protests, both peaceful and violent, have dominated the news.
On a personal note, for the first time since March I physically entered the building where I work, because even though I’m still working remotely, there were things I needed to take care of and items I needed to bring home. Moving through the mostly empty building, waving and calling out greetings to the few others present, was a completely surreal experience.
For today’s post I planned to write, apolitically, about this week of emotional overload, but I just don’t think I’m up to the task. Instead, I’d like to share this David Knopfler song, which encapsulates a lot of what I’m feeling:
As always, I welcome your thoughts, and would love to know what’s happening in your lives and how you’re feeling. Be well.
