when i was around three or four, i used to follow the older kids into the woods next to our house. i thought it was fun– like an adventure. i have always liked getting out and exploring new places/situations; i have never been a homebody
when i lived in chicago, it was so cold in the winters that i stayed indoors the vast majority of the winter. i would get stir crazy being in closed quarters for such long periods of time. when it warmed up, it was serious freedom: spring never felt so good
with the coronavirus restrictions, i wonder how these changes will affect us as a society. many of us are so used to being mobile and getting out of the house. how will these types of “quarantines” change us? we have witnessed people’s fears as there has been hoarding at various stores. what other ways will our fears be shown?
