“Everything has to be rethought.”
So painfully true in today’s oddity that passes for our everyday life. We can devise intentional communities, with neighbors and co-workers intermingled in housing, work/make space, daily chores and even a sustainable and supporting farm, so that all inhabitants eat well and have meaningful work. We can rebuild cities or hamlets, construct a completely new healthcare system, give our kids a broad and extraordinarily useful education outside of a traditional classroom.
And if you get around to writing down your thoughts and emotions about the Covid-19 pandemic, to leave to your children or just curious strangers, consider Canetti’s on autobiography: “When you write down your life, every page should contain something no one has ever heard about.”
That would be one hell of a bestseller.
