As I sit here from the comfort of my childhood home, I’m almost at a loss for words. A month ago, even two weeks ago, who could have imagined that we would be living in the midst of a true pandemic? On Sunday I left NYC for the suburbs to self-quarantine and help do my part to stop the spread of COVID-19. As I drove over the Williamsburg Bridge leaving my precious New York City, the place I am proud to call home, I watched the city skyline disappear behind me and I knew that life as we know would never be the same. There would only be life before Coronavirus and life after.
As we’re living in the limbo that is Coronavirus, it feels like the world has been put on hold. Socialization has come to a halt, stores, restaurants and other business have shut down, and despite the fact that this is all very real, there are times where I feel like I am living in an alternate reality. From someone who is usually pretty articulate, I do write for a living after all, I’ve found myself unable to describe what is going on. I keep repeating the word insane to those around me—it’s the only word I can use to describe what’s happening. What is going on in the world right now is truly insane.
Megs shared her thoughts on coronavirus as well earlier this week and as she said, we’re all in this together. We’re here for you as we navigate the world right now we want to do our best to serve you, our loyal community.
