Whether panic is needed seems to depend on those who seed it …
Who you gonna call
When there’s no number given?
All in a panic, listening to the news;
We, who are used to a very quick fix;
A pill to cure all our ills.
Fear causes quite a stir
When there’s no one to call.
This evening at d’Verse, De Jackson asked us to write a Quidrille of exactly 44 words using the word stir. With the Coronavirus causing a major world wide stir, I thought I would write about our reaction to it.

“Metamorphosis doesn’t look the same for everyone. Don’t be afraid to share your story.”
We live in a time where Mental Health issues and PTSD affect many in our society. Some things in life cannot be fixed by a pill, a doctor, or a will to change. In the past generation, sharing this kind of issue was a stigma and considered shameful by many. Our scars and differences are not something to be hidden or kept within ourselves. Sharing our story can be the first step in finding healing and wholeness again. Our story is what makes us unique from everyone else. How good are you at listening to what others are going through?
when we largely treat suffering
like a problem to fix
rather than a story to tell.”
