Nicholas Bate, as usual, channeling what I’m feeling right at this moment with his latest 100 words post.
Stay strong. It’s wearing you down: news that isn’t news; reporting that isn’t journalism; Zoom meetings which lack soul and real let’s get this done eye-ball to eye-ball contact. Desperate sameness: eating, sleeping, playing and working in the same habitat. No true hunter-gatherer ever on planet earth did that. Of course it’s getting you down: synapses are over-loading at bandwidths which are exceeding recommended capacity. Of course you are feeling tired and frankly need a holiday. But wait: those are not allowed. Stay strong. Get brilliant at what is under your control. Stay pragmatic and zen-like about the rest. Stay strong.
