As I talked about earlier in the week, sometimes you need to just surrender to the unexpected. Obviously I knew that there was a chance that my plans could change imminently when I wrote that post, and this has come to pass. I am writing this post from the Los Angeles airport, and I am enroute to Canada, there to voluntarily self quarantine for the two weeks recommended by my government. 

Did I manage this with perfect ease? Of course not. There was a day when I pretty much did nothing but cry, but after that bit of a meltdown, I picked myself up, asked my family where I who I should go to, and booked a flight for 23 hours later. 

It means letting go of my plans to go to Greece with my man, not knowing how long it will be until we see each other again, and the possible loss or partial loss of two major flights. My future life is possibly the most uncertain it has been since I began this crazy adventure. It's a very concrete reminder that one's life can change in an instant. So hug your loved ones while you can, if you can, and if you can't, drop them a text or pick up a phone and let them know.

And yet, I'm safe, I have family that's prepared to put me up (or should that be put up with me?) and try to make self isolation not horrible, and I have more than one device that keeps me in contact with the outside world. Let's all use these next few weeks as a chance to come together, rather than tear us apart. These sorts of crises can bring out the worst in humanity, but they can also bring out the best.

And so, I implore you: be good to each other.
