It’s high time for a walk on the real side
Let’s admit the bastards beat us
I move to dissolve the corporation
In a pool of margaritas
So let’s switch off all the lights
And light up all the Luckies
Crankin’ up the afterglow
‘Cause we’re goin’ out of business
Everything must go – Steely Dan (AKA The Dan)
Situation Normal: All Fucked Up
Everything must go; Old ways of Thinking, Living, Making a Living, Socializing, “Shopping,” Everything must go. We need to draw down our respective footprints. Time to prioritize the important things in our lives (God, Family, Friends, Health.) High time to adapt and take advantage of this moment and seek out the silver lining and hidden opportunities. Those opportunities are always there – be on the lookout. Be Contrarian.
How surreal is March 2020? In our high desert Arizona town, throngs of tourists continue streaming in and ambling about as if everything is, “business as usual.” Normal…Nuevo Quasi semi pseudo normalcy. What planet are these people living on? Ignorance is bliss.
Looking this Chinese Virus (Covid-19) in the face, the picture isn’t pretty. Recession? Yes. Depression? Real possibility. We’re looking at Governmental Lockdowns & Martial Law for long stretches of time. Months and beyond. Not to mention the implosion of our economy. Tougher Times.
Life is going to change a lot more. What can we do about it? Change with it and be there for each other. It was recently heard, “I can’t wait until things go back to normal.” These folks could be in for a very long wait. Thank God we live in the United States of America. God’s Country. America is Great, and Americans are even Greater. Good times or bad, we always pull together…and Pull Through.
