The Plague

One of my friend’s has just finished reading The Plague by Albert Camus. Its the story of a plague sweeping the French Algerian city of Oran.

Another friend suggested I look like I’m about to go into a fighting scene of Game of Thrones. The series is filmed around Ballintoy Harbor close to where the picture above and below were taken.

It got me thinking about time, place, and courage. A lot of us are helping save lives by just obeying the stay home orders. And practicing solitude – (see previous post on Solitude and Leadership). It feels strange to be acting heroically or for the greater good, by just staying home. Yet that is what is saving lives.

I have sworn an oath of solitude until the pestilence is purged from the lands. How about you?

What are you learning about yourself in this season of self-isolation?

There’s wonderful sand dunes behind me in the picture below. Natural coastal defenses for Viking raids of the past. If they caught me they’d probably pull the silver fillings right out of my mouth 😊
