As I See It

What a week it was

Scott Robert Shaw



Well, that was quite a week. For a brief time we thought our biggest worry was what we were going to do without March Madness, or the state basketball tournament. But with hurricane-force speed, things changed in a hurry. We learned of the new term, social-distancing. And it’s become all the rage. Suddenly we were spending nearly all of our free-time, and many of us had more of it than usual, inside our own homes. No more school. No Friday night fish fries and brandy old-fashions. No movies, no sporting events, no concerts, no plays, no graduation ceremonies. Weddings are being postponed and funerals are being live-streamed.  No more salad bars, no more deli or meat case. No more haircuts. We’re even getting more time to pay our taxes. Even getting together with a couple friends now seems in question.  All of these changes to our daily routines happened in just one week. The change came suddenly, and fiercely. It will for many of us be one of those, “Where were you when” moments that we will tell our grandchildren about. But we made it through. This is a new week. So, let’s get ready for whatever this new week brings.
