Stay home has been the word of the day for the past two months. Stay home, Noa sings from her 3rd floor pulpit. Learn to make it your safe haven. What else can Home mean? Observing from my veranda. The cobbler puffing in his shop. The neighbours. The pedestrians.
Let your actions speak for yourself. Make the best of this opportunity and be the better version of yourself. We are all, all over the planet, experiencing a common affliction. It's not "our neighbour's war”. Fill your heart with joy because you matter! Be the stork that observes. Stay home!
