That's one of my favourite sci-fi novels. But right now I feel like re-reading it and I don’t feel like re-reading it.
I know how you feel.
As I recall, part of the story included how difficult it was to get coffee. The thought of coffee shortages is unsettling.
I agree - if something that you've always been able to have is no longer available, it feels very strange.
Like stepping outside your home, for instance :)
I only had to do that for 2 weeks - will it feel bizarre to go out for a walk that isn't for an essential purpose?
From today on, we have go out for a walk with the only purpose of walking/practising individual sport. There are limitations: timetable (according to ages), and distance. But, all in all, I think it would be nice for a change.
At least it is a step in the direction of getting back to normal.
I wrote you a letter about that. It will reach you in two months or so ;)
And it will feel like 4 years :)
Or The Twilight Zone
Good one! I watched Contagion a couple of weekends ago. With scenes today from Michigan, it feels like we are not all that far away from the movie.
