My worldview changed

It’s a little hard to articulate, but something fundamental changed in my view of the future. I saw an opening, a light, the possibility of actually getting past this thing on at least some level.

Precautions are as much for others as for yourself

Before I unexpectedly got a vaccine appointment, I was asked by a friend if I was aggressively pursuing an appointment. I said no because though I’m 65, I have no underlying conditions and I felt there were those at the front lines, and those with compromised health, who needed it more than me. Very altruistic of me.
