NEWSPAPER PUBLISHED WEEKLY ON WEDNESDAY - WEBSITE UPDATED THURSDAY

What’s Your Plan – 04292020

Home Opinions What’s Your Plan - 04292020
I didn’t quite complete all that I had in mind last week. I hope to finish up this week. Don’t worry if you were unable to catch last week’s column, you’ll be able to jump in at this point and be only a bit behind jargon-wise. We were in the midst of a marathon and the throng of the wall. If you followed my suggestion, you had little difficulty in pressing forward. The goal today is to finish the race.

Life is a journey and best taken in at a deliberate sightseeing pace. Forget the sprint. If one needs to make it a race, make sure it is a marathon. Too fast and you will miss a lot. Or worse, you come up with an injury that puts you out for good. I trust that we all can learn from the recovery and come out better.

It looks as if we will not be coming out of our present lockdown anytime soon. If I can rely on my information, Yolo County has made it mandatory to wear a face mask out in public and has left the policing up to open businesses. No Shirt, No Shoes, NO MASK, you are trespassing, and we will call the cops! Not like law enforcement has anything better to do.

I am now more than ever grateful to be living in Colusa County. I can at least have a civil conversation with my neighbors, and my experience is that we tend to lean toward looking out for one another. I spent way too long living in the city. Neighbors seldom look at you much less inquire as to how you are doing. The population is living one right on top of the other. Their situation is different from ours and therefore different measures are in order. One size does not fit all!

I have lost faith in those that should know better. From politicians to government workers, to the medical field; no two can come to the same conclusion and are certainly not in the same boat (can’t keep their social distancing standard). I fear it is too easy to get caught up in gloom and doom and lose sight in that which is bright.

My circle of friends is for the most part well. I express my gratitude for this and an army of caregivers. There is one who has the virus. According to the experts, the individual is Confirmed and therefore should be a fatality because they are within multiple categories for certain death. Here lies the miracle, they are making a wonderful recovery. This is a stat that you will be unlikely to hear. Ill-destined, or a sign of the times?

Again, about the only thing I feel that we have any real control over is our ability to choose how we will react to any given situation. This era will indeed provide many lessons; both for civilization and individually. I will continue to be a good global citizen and follow orders as directed; my mask will be in place on my next visit to Woodland.

My hope is that you are taking things in stride and that the walls aren’t seeming to be closing in. Go out and get copious amounts of sun and fresh air! These haven’t been regulated away yet. I leave you with this question, how will you remember this period of your life?
