The white wallaby

I can’t think straight at the moment.

My focus is completely shot.

I’ve lost work. I’m worried about how I’m going to pay the bills and keep my family safe.

And I’ve been stricken by the infodemic. I’m doing risk and and uncertainty calculations all the time:

  • At what point do we activate the plan to totally isolate my 76-year-old mother-in-law from the two young kids who also live in our house?
  • Is it even possible to do so in a way that will protect her, given the constraints of the physical space?
