"TRAVELING ALONE, living alone can be a kind of continuing meditation. I return to my empty apartment, where courtesy of technology I can choose to fill the silence with any number of electronic machines, images and voices . . . living for that new car or the oncoming vacation, living for retirement. Only when I arrive at the glittering future I discover that, as Buddhism so accurately predicts, I'm still dissatisfied. Or I can embrace and enter the silence, to see where it takes me over the months and years."
Which is what living now with the virus could teach us: to enter our aloneness, to be still, just to be present, and to see where the aloneness and the silence takes us and what it has to teach us.
