Subject: RE: De-clutter & Fitness in a Pandemic: 2021
I had it easy this pandemic go around. I was not an essential worker forced to work. I had company. We relied on delivery but not door dash or grub hub. An unspoken white priviledge was possibly at its core.
I had N-95 masks from the beggining. There was not a weather emergency or other natural disaster. I did not get infected by blind luck. If I had close calls I was gratefully unaware. We were not compulsive about surfaces and cleaning.
There will be more pandemics where the infected have only a 33% survival rate but they will be fungal in nature and CRISPR messenger rna technology may be of no help. Already almost 2 million have died from aparticular fungal infection but it passes unobserved by the population as a normal occurance over time. Spores are different than virus.

Other people's experience of loss is tragically the opposite experience I encountered. In this case luck was better than being good.

As for decluttering yard sales are still not doing well. There is alot on freecycle
