These are indeed surreal times. I feel like I’ve gotten one less dollop of surreality by being on sabbatical this semester and so not having to deal with remote classes or meetings. At the same time, I’ve got an extra dollop by being holed up in a foreign country, not knowing much of anyone and not being able to get back home even if needed.

Hang in there, KF, R, and everybody else. It’s not going to be the same world on the other side; I just hope we have a chance to make it better.
