A day later than planned, I final have completed the first day of my voluntary quarantine. Himself has been home for more than a week already, out of an abundance of caution. The fear that I may have brought something home despite all my precautions is a solid, real thing. The curve is rising fast, particularly here, I’ve definitely gone from the frying pan to the fire. There are still no cases identified where my parents are. Will this be our future – counting cases, trying to control our fears? With the mantra of the future be “Fear is the mind-killer”?
