We interact with others while wearing masks and maintaining social distance. The ordinary skin connections of hugging, touching, shaking or holding hands is limited by the threat of contracting the virus. We walk through supermarkets and for the most part avoid the ordinary interactions that can make life sweet and pleasant. We see people going through the aisles with a sense of fear. We wash our clothes after an outing to the store. We become fastidious about cleanliness. We are all carrying fear, and perhaps the worst of it is the sense of uncertainty about our lives going forward.
