ONCE AGAIN . . . THE TIMES THEY ARE A-CHANGIN’


B


ob Dylan’s prophetic song The Times They Are A-Changin’ applies now maybe even more than in the ‘60s when this timeless poetic song first hit the music charts.


That said, it’s hard to see beyond the tragedy of the times. We are


experiencing the worst pandemic in a century. All over the globe, people are dying, and doing so alone in hospitals. Our lives have been totally upended. People are out of work. School buildings are closed and classes are online. The economy is in the tank. Sports and entertainment venues are closed to the public. Church services are on YouTube, and grocery


stores have waiting lines. On the more mundane side, hair, nail and massage salons made a brief appearance but are again closed down. Restaurants that haven’t gone under are serving take-out or guests are dining on tables set up in the streets. Zoom is a new verb. Facemasks have become a political statement.


Weddings and funerals are on hold. Summer fun such as parades, fireworks, swimming pools and family reunions are history. Traveling is a thing of the past. People no longer touch each other when meeting and greeting. Absolutely everything has changed and it’s damn hard!
