This has been a very trying time to live in.
All the death, the fear, the propaganda and paranoia, one thing shines above all as a beacon for me. Perspective.
My new play "We the People" has been shaped by this virus. The show was already a post apocalyptic character study on what happens when government fails us. Now that I've actually watched it crumble and crack I believe I've got a much more realistic vision of the future if these shadows remain unchanged.
More importantly however, is my personal view of life and the important things in it. I have had more time to spend with my children and reflect on life. I've had the opportunity to slow my life down to a more enjoyable and valuable pace. Please don't get me wrong. I'm not looking forward to the return of the plague or alien invasions. My heart goes out to all of those who lost loved ones and jobs. I am just saying there are a few silver linings to find in these storm clouds. Look carefully for them, then hold on when you find one.
