The final quote from Gaylord seems even more pertinent given our lockdown. We would do well to focus on those aspects of our earthly practices that nurtured an environment in which Covid-19 developed.

I heard a nice phase the other day. We're currently living through 'The Great Pause'.
I quite like this reduced profligacy. Gotta be more sustainable overall. Hopefully lots of the lessons we’re learning will be maintained in the future. Perhaps we might never return to the extravagant consumption that had become the norm. Mindful travel could become a thing?

Oh hang on! Realism alert. I’m dreaming! Sadly.
