“May you live in interesting times” is purported to be a Chinese curse but it actually isn’t. Nevertheless we currently live in interesting times, and it does feel like a curse. Apparently this saying can be traced back to the British diplomatic corps, which also fits because the best directive for this time of the coronavirus pandemic is the famous British World War II motto:
“Keep calm and carry on.”
That’s what I wish for all of you, dear readers, if indeed you have the wherewithal to even read this.
Stay healthy! And remember, the Brits got through their horrendous challenge, and we will get through ours.
A lot of people aren’t keeping calm, and that’s part of the problem.
Indeed it is, and it surely isn’t easy to stay calm but that’s the point of that old WWII British motto.
