Yesterday I got out for the 6th time since the beginning of the quarantine, for my weekly grocery shopping.
It was very different this time, and it was mostly good stuff.
For starters, I saw people on the streets, on my way to the grocery store. Not many, but I think I counted at least 10 (which is way more than zero, as it was previous times). The most interesting was a couple, wearing masks, but at the same time looking cautiously for a bench where they could smoke a cigarette.
Second, inside the supermarket the atmosphere wasn't supercharged anymore, it was almost business as usual, except for the very small number of customers, and for the fact that they were wearing masks (not all, but 95% yes).
And third, the expression on people's faces was (for the first time since the quarantine started, 6 weeks ago) not about anxiety, or tension. It was a strange, puzzled gaze, very much like the one you see on boxer's faces when they are counted by the referee after a knock-down, the moment they just got up and look around, trying to tell everybody: "I'm ok, I'm ok, can we get back to what we're doing before?".
I put together some of the previous logs of this quarantine in a slightly longer article on my blog, if you're curious.
There is an ongoing funding proposal for two of my projects here on Hive: hive.supply and the PHP Hive Tools library, which will allow me to support some of the costs involved. If you want to support this proposal, all you have to do is to vote it using any of the two links below:
