I love that there are so many free personal enrichment offerings online. I’m glad that so many conferences are available virtually. I wish I had the emotional/mental bandwidth to take advantage of any of it. One of the things quarantine is teaching me is that saying no to good things is as important as saying no to stressful things. And there is huge value in empty space physically, temporally, and emotionally. The things I am learning right now are mostly invisible. It is a mental and emotional reconfiguration of life. It doesn’t feel like progress or learning, yet I have this vague inkling that it will be transformative in the long run. The caterpillar spinning its cocoon looks like it is just hiding.
