Interestingly enough, this has changed over the past two weeks. Suddenly, the paths through the fields are teeming with people. Where I live, teeming means one or two dozen people, but still. Having no where else to go, my fellow villagers and those from neighboring settlements are discovering or rediscovering the simple pleasure of being out for a stroll on a cool, sunny, spring day.
I wonder if this will last after life returns to some semblance of 'normal', assuming it ever does.
