Corona and the Crone

Covid-19 forces us into contemplation time

Uncertainty, fear and - for me - the cancellation of all my paid work for the foreseeable future. It's not good. To put it mildly. But, maybe, just maybe, this shock to the system can help us rethink our world. For the better.

Me - the Crone

Well, it feels like that when you're female and above a certain age. But crones have a role to play. A repository of a life's thinking, wondering, exploring, considering. And I've done that through literature, philosophy, psychology, bits of neuroscience, some history and sociology and a lot of listening to what others have to say.


There is a tide in the affairs of men.
Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;
Omitted, all the voyage of their life
Is bound in shallows and in miseries.
On such a full sea are we now afloat,
And we must take the current when it serves,
Or lose our ventures.

Julius Caesar Act 4, scene 3, 218–224

William Shakespeare
