Certainly this picture of Michelangelo's David is a sign of the times. COVID 19 has pushed us apart, has stressed our societal systems and has laid out a very complicated future for millions around the globe. It's a complicated time to be alive and be paying attention.
However, we've learned it's not all doom and gloom. This virtual reality has forced us to trim the fat, focus on what's really important, and appreciate the opportunities we have in front of us. Many of us are extremely fortunate to have a powerful tool in the Internet to keep us connected; never forget this, or take it for granted. Take yourself on virtual tour of some of the world's most celebrated museums, to remember and appreciate all of those who have come before and inspired the world you live in.
Now is the time to make that video call to your colleague, client, and/or family member. Show them you're still human and make contact in the most direct and personable way you can.
Despite ridiculous pop cultural pressures to vastly self improve during the pandemic (thank you Jessica Crispin from The Guardian), the one thing you're going to wish you would have done during this strange time is work on your humanity and do more even if just to lay eyes on someone. Connect, collaborate with and confide in others; you'll come out of this strange time a different, stronger, and better person for it.
