Body distancing

Let’s stop calling it Social Distancing. Maybe we should call it Body Distancing or Contact Distancing. I’m more digitally and socially connected to my friends and family than I’ve been in a long time. We are all checking in with each other daily.

The conversations are roller coasters. We share quarantine jokes, and then it’ll swing to an article about medical supply shortages. It’s just part of the new way we connect and converse across closed borders and countries. Thank goodness for WhatsApp and FaceTime.

When we are on the other side of this thing, we will have some new digital social muscles to flex, and of course, a new appreciation for a good hug when we see the people we love in the flesh.
