A friend was recently musing about the numbness and sense of dis-connectedness they are experiencing at present.
I understand that loss, or at least something similar.
I keep returning in my thoughts to the Influenza pandemic of 1918 (Spanish Flu), and those who perished in it, alongside the aftermath of the Great War.
I see parallel issues echoing through time, the increased Nationalism, the moves towards fascism, and this economic downturn that preceded the Great Depression.
And I can only stare in disbelief as I think “Here we go again.”
