This painting was done from a photograph my sister took of her left-handed-carpenter son's injured thumb during the rennovation of her kitchen. Although delay of work was necessary, the desired outcome included his complete recovery, ability to function fully in his future carpentry work, and a completed kitchen. The kitchen got done, and it looks great. His thumb healed, and his work is still exceptional. If he had ignored the necessity to rest it, the outcomes may not have been so good.
I think we can learn some things here. Health professionals say we need to practice social distancing to stop the spread of Covid-19. The desired outcome includes health for all residents of our communities, businesses that can function well while keeping clients, staff, and customers safe, and a better functioning society for the future. We can choose to ignore it, or we can accept the delay of plans and inconvenience to wait for the best outcome.
