Weeks spent in quarantine force on us a slower pace compared to those rushed days of the recent past. I feel like I’ve been swimming in molasses with waves of sadness, fear, worry and occasional absurdity rolling over me depending on the day. Time is a mess. There’s too much screen time, not enough time to sleep and plenty of time to think. We’re all trying to cope, but the big takeaway is that even the best conference technology is no substitute for real human connection. It doesn’t take long for isolation to take its toll.
