The New Normal

For the moment, I remain a member of the employed and working portion of our society, despite the increasing numbers of my friends and acquaintances who have thrown off the daily grind for retired life at the beach, or elsewhere. I remain aware Monday's arrival and look forward to Friday afternoons. 

With the country hunkering down to combat the virus, I have noticed that the roads are less congested during the first two days of this week. Of course the schools and many businesses are closed which significantly reduces the amount of morning and afternoon traffic. The lack of sports activity as a diversion is a very real problem--we all still speak of sports, like it was something that ancient civilizations used to have. 

The stock futures are down again this morning after yesterday's rally. I guess it was to be expected. The down-up-down pattern will continue, I guess. 

The news just gets worse, it seems, with each passing day. 

Keep up hope! We are all in this together, even though we have to maintain social distancing.
