Savoy and black beans

With half of the savoy cabbage left in the fridge, I fried it with zucchini, red onions and black beans while the kids were listening to the audio book “Musse and Helium” in the background.

After the spring sunshine yesterday, today has been cold and melancholic. On the other side of the North Sea, Boris Johnson is taking one for the team and for future herd immunity by testing positive for Covid-19. In Sweden, the school remains open (for now) but gatherings of more than 50 people have been banned as of today. Not that many such gatherings were happening anyway as most people seem to understand the seriousness of the situation. The key factor remains to what extent older people will be willing to accept these new and rather extreme restrictions to their everyday life. Retirement alone often induces feelings of redundancy and emptiness. As such, I presume it takes quite a bit of existential maturity to understand that this is a collective problem of probabilities and not about one’s own situation.
