Imagination in the Time of Coronavirus: Smack Dab in the Imagination by Dia Calhoun

Separated from your usual activities--school, work, social life--now is the time to get close to your imagination. Imagination loves introversion, rambling, reflection, and quiet. In our busy lives, we usually keep imagination much farther than six feet away. But now you can hold your imagination in your arms. You can run with it, hand in hand. Have have lunch with it. You can see where it leads you now that you have time to spend with it. No social distancing needed!

Gabriel Garcia Marquez wrote the famous novel Love in the Time of Cholera.  Maybe someone will write Imagination in the Time of Novel Coronavirus. For that matter--write a coronavirus novel.

Ask what your imagination been telling you all these years. Now you have time to listen.
