Today we entered the third calendar month of quarantine. It’s crazy, mad, bonkers, isn’t it?

Who would have thought, if I had told you even only two months ago, that most of the world would be under a form of house arrest. It came from nowhere, and I wonder what societal changes, both medium and long term, will come about because of this.

Financially, this has been a disaster for me. I had to cancel my writing classes, which were just about to start. With many people now also suffering economically, it may well hit sign-ups when we reconvene in September. I’m guessing the chances of doing a summer session are also scuppered.

But everyone is suffering, and there is no point moaning about it. At least I got to spend time with my daughter, who was here visiting when the stay-at-home kicked in, so she was able to go to school online for five-and-a-half weeks. Also, so far I’ve managed to write 100,000 words of my third book.

We still have much to be thankful for. Stay safe and healthy everyone.
