I went from mild consternation to great foreboding – mainly for fear that I might not make it back into the country.

I boarded one of the last planes out of Costa Rica, just before the frontiers closed.

Today, I nestle at home with a full larder and a fidgety mind. How can I stay relevant and at peace in the time of pestilence and social distancing? I found five things that are keeping me on track and focused on what’s important.

Overthinking Mind, Sensitive Heart: A Problem in the Modern World

Getting Through Together, Apart

A lot has changed in the last days.

I am getting more and more hopeful for humanity in some ways.
