Personally, I'm not affected by the coronavirus thing. I'm already quarantined; I can't ride in a vehicle without extreme pain, and going out shopping or to Starbucks simply isn't on.
It's not a bad way to live. You just have to stay focused, and not weep over that which you cannot have.
The sonnet below first appeared as a comment on Michelle Ule's blog.
Cancer's got me quarantined,
and it's really not so bad.
Not, perhaps, livin' the dream
but there's fun yet to be had,
and life is still productive,
though it take some motivation
to avoid the self-destructive
aspects of the situation.
Take care to dress well every day
(don't lounge in an old dressing-gown),
alternate your work and play,
and be aware you have a crown
that awaits you with the Father;
do your best, today, to live the honour.
Music from Bobby McFerrin, with Don't Worry Be Happy.

Friends are everything. I couldn't have done it.
