Day by day, Spring is evolving. Don't feel like staying at home... I just want to go outside to play (and have dinner in a restaurant too).
les fleurs et le soleil s'installent dans nos vies
flowers and sunshine are taking up residence in our lives
But then... fear created by media coverage on an eventual pandemic dampens enthusiasm. The only positive thing in all this? An accent put on responsible citizenship and basic hygiene principles when one is fortunate enough to live in a society. It's a small price to pay, thinking of people who surround us. When I was young, in grade school, we were taught rudiments of life within a community. Quarantines were applied when we had childhood illnesses. Smallpox, mumps? Simply put, we stayed at home. It's a good thing to refresh our memories on basic rules... During the last decades, flu has become a community disease, we propagate it with glee, with no regards to people surrounding us. This fear of swine flu might well put some well-needed order in things.
