This virus as a truth serum
Updated: Jul 7
This virus is revealing a truth about ourselves.
Lydia and I went to the theatre last night. Full house. And I was speaking to one of their staff and she mentioned it’s been a full house for the entire run.
I mentioned it’s amazing how paranoid, diligent and careful people are unless the tickets they paid for are unrefundable.
And I think that’s the problem. This is exposing our true values hierarchy.
We don’t go to church but we go to the theatre. Or our work meetings are our priority, symptoms or not. Or we’re about protecting a fragile sense of ego and social perception by not self-isolating for the stigma it could carry.
This is the new inconvenient truth. And this time it’s about ourselves.
