“There’s always an Arquillian Battle Cruiser, or a Corillian Death Ray, or an intergalactic plague that is about to wipe out all life on this miserable little planet, and the only way these people can get on with their happy lives is that they DO NOT KNOW ABOUT IT!” -Men In Black

Since all of my tests came back clear for flu, strep or coronavirus there is no telling why I’ve been sick for 6 weeks now but it doesn’t seem to be getting worse or better so, I’ll take it.

Now is a crappy time to be sick, and I see a lot of people playing the same guessing game. Is this the end, or just allergies?

We live in uncertain times. It’s strange how you can be going about your day and things feel almost normal, and a moment later you remember what is going on in the world around you and you re-enter this strange alternate reality we now inhabit.

They’ve known about Coronavirus since the 60’s, it has existed in bats for who knows how long. We just know that it exists now, and we didn’t before. Isn’t it strange how nothing has really changed, but then again, everything has changed?

Reality does that sometimes. It just shifts. Usually, it’s more personal shifts in reality. A marriage falls apart. A loved one dies. We battle injury or illness. We have those moments where it almost seems like it never happened at all, and we have those moments where it all comes crashing down like a ton of bricks.

Times are scary, but little has really changed. There is always an Arquillian Battle Cruiser or an intergalactic plague that is about to wipe out all life on this miserable little planet. But somehow we keep making it through.

I’ll be honest, the fantasy fiction geek in me sometimes hope we somehow jump back into our own timeline. Back to the real world where Coronavirus is still confined to bats where it belongs.

I like fantasy more than reality now more than ever. This new reality isn’t much fun, but it is reality.

I learned a meditation a few years ago somewhere, and I find myself saying it a lot on normal days, and these my friends are not normal days.

“I don’t like this, but I can’t change it, and so I am going to accept it.”

And that’s the truth.
