Shades of Grey
The great football coach, Vince Lombardi, told his players to “run to daylight,” meaning run toward those places where there were fewest people to stop you.
We keep talking about “light at the end of the tunnel” (or is it “another train”?).
Dark and light are often exchanged through shades of grey, as at dawn and dusk. We haven’t been in darkness through the pandemic, we’ve been in shades of grey, some darker in places, some lighter. Move toward lighter areas, not darker ones. Move toward people who want to improve, want to conduct business, want to make the best of what they have. Move away from people who want to blame others, who are afraid to move, who fear the worst, who believe the sky is falling.
Eventually, most of us will see the bright light of a new day, but not those with their heads in the ground or hiding under the bed with the shades drawn down.
Play the hand you’re dealt.
