The weirdest thing has happened to me since the COVID-19 crackdown arrived. I’m actually feeling less stressed.
Why? I think it’s because I can only consider one existential crisis at a time and apparently my lizard brain is less afraid of disease-fueled social collapse than it is of global climate catastrophe. In other words, a Really Bad Thing has replaced a Really, Really Bad Thing in my anxiety synapses, and I’m feeling better for it.
If you want to know what the heck that’s all about, you’ll have to read my column today. (Here it is) It’s about making insulation with hemp and lime, except that’s not really what it’s about.
