How small we are in comparison

It's so weird going for a walk in Toronto today in the beautiful spring weather,
with all the trees flowering. You see other people coming towards you, and you
move into the middle of the street, or onto the opposite side of the street. And this
walking dance is perpetual. For the most part, on small side streets, car drivers
are getting used to moving around pedestrians who of necessity have to get into
the middle of the street sometimes to avoid other pedestrians.
Given that current reality the big picture is this: those of us who can walk through
the streets, enjoy the beautiful spring, put on our masks, and move away from one
another are the lucky ones. This virus is taking down whole families now.
Yes it’s tiring, but imagine the fatigue of frontline workers. More than a year of
this! And now there are so few intensive care beds, that doctors are talking about
facing decisions about who to save. Yes if we're getting to go for a walk in the
beautiful spring, we are lucky!
Stay safe and stay healthy!
