Staying at Home in the Farm

bulacan_083800 (Before enforced home quarantine.)

The reality is that, in cities or small villages, people are asked to stay home, with only one person per household allowed to go out for necessities.

We miss what we used to take for granted. The simple joys of social connection and freedom of movement.

It may be a respite from the rush of the modern world, but it comes with a stiff economic price. It is a tricky balance against the number of lives that will be lost if the health care system gets overwhelmed.

One can only hope and pray that this will be over soon. Then we can enjoy a real break, be it in the city or in the countryside.
