“All of humanity's problems stem from man's inability to sit quietly in a room alone.”


― Blaise Pascal, Pensées


Full Catastrophe Living is a manual about using mindfullness to cope with , well, the exact situation we find ourselves in globally, THIS INTERNATIONAL PANDEMIC.

It is indeed a radical act of love just to sit down and be quiet for a time by yourself. Jon Kabat-Zinn".  

Quarantine (Italian quaranta giorni 40 days) a Venitian seafarers practice of ships returning from strange lands--- It began during the 14th century in an effort to protect coastal cities from plague epidemics. Ships arriving in Venice from infected ports were required to sit at anchor for 40 days before landing. 


We have no choice but to sit alone quietly in our homes.... yet here in West Sussex, the National Health Service  encourages all of us to get a bit of fresh air and exercise. What a difference this has made.


Work at home is a nice notion, if you happen to have a  job that doesn't require you to be there. Doctors  and nurses are working, Waiters  and dishwashers are not---but everyone is getting sick from the COVID19 pandemic.

The IN to our Sane during 'lockdowns'and physical distancing will be movement, and thoughtful nudges to get things done----exercise, learn guitar, a foreign language, sing, read, just be.

Math is hard, but we have to count our blessings thatw e are sequstered and have to have free time, something we always comidify as not HAVING ENOUGH of...We are all Time Millionaires.

Highlight for this visitor was the Air Force One Pavilion. The library is a great tribute to President Ronalad Reagan, portrayed in the tour as an ordinary guy doing extraodinary things throughout his long life.
