Right now everyone is curled up in a (metaphorical?) fetal position waiting for this pandemic to blow over.
A lot of us have had to cancel our best laid vacation plans or postpone weekend trips, birthday surprise trips (me), and even weddings.
This is disappointing at best but also exciting because while we’re not traveling, we’re also staying alive and better yet, helping other people stay alive. Yay for life!
But wanderlust isn’t dead, it’s merely dormant. Sleeping, dreaming, hoping, and awaiting the day when the world will wake up again.
So while you’re sheltering in place, keep dreaming of where you’ll go. Keep planning your adventures.
If we don’t get through this, the world is dead and nothing will matter anymore. But if we do get through this, people WILL travel again!
If the COVID-19 pandemic has proven anything, it’s just how small our world really is and how connected we all are.
Even now I go outside my house and there are families with strollers, bike riders, runners, couples walking their dogs – so many dogs! We all give ourselves a wide berth when we pass and no one thinks you’re rude when you see them coming and cross the street. 🙂

The situation sure seemed dire for radio, but looks like that turned out alright, yah?
Where will you go when the world returns?
