As life slows down
We get a chance to look around us more carefully
No longer rushing about
We can linger and ponder
Longing for connection
We find new ways of reaching out
Technology is crucial in our lives
People passing away
Makes us reassess our priorities
We look at our lives and think what makes us happy
No longer having easy access to material things
We wonder how much we actually need
When life is simpler
And there is more time for contemplation
We can rearrange our lives

I wonder what we will think
When we look back at these unusual times
Days of physical isolation
Working from home
Worries and fears
What will we take away from this experience?
Will we be wiser?
Will we be less materialistic?
Will we be more thankful for all that we have?
Will we have made new friends and connections?
Will our priorities have changed?
When the ground is plowed
The harvest is bountiful
The longer the stew simmers
The more delicious it is
Difficulties need to be followed by insight
Otherwise suffering is wasted time
