Distance means caring

Distance means caring

This is a lonely time for just about everyone.  People are trying to stay connected as they best they can while being quarantined.  The strong drive to be among others can be seen at your neighborhood park.  There are joggers, bikers, walkers, kids, dogs, and even fishing lines are being cast about.  Something's changed drastically though: people are still courteous and smiling, but they're giving quite a breadth of space when passing by.  The first few times I observed this, I felt a bit insulted as though they'd assumed I was carrying the virus.  Logically, people want to steer clear of even the chance of getting it, but then why go to the park in the first place?  It's in our nature to be communal and to see others and be seen by them.  My perspective was sharpened today as I stepped many feet out of my way as a grandmother in her wheelchair came gliding down my path.  I moved for her safety, not for mine.  Let's have this perspective as we engage with others assuming that they always intended the best for us as we do for them.
