On Never Going Back: The Tragedy and Hope of Change During Covid-19

It’s hard to describe how profound things are changing. I think we are all aware that this is a very serious crisis, and that this virus is affecting us in ways that we have never experienced before.

Ways of Thinking in Self-Quarantine: Imagination and Divergence

It’s Friday, and I am heading into another weekend. Except that it doesn’t really feel like it. There’s no looking forward to spending time with friends or going out, and even walking around town isn’t what it used to be; there aren’t as many shops and cafes open and wearing a mask is honestly constricting …
