The Gotham Gal and I have been largely self quarantining in our
home for the last two weeks and are preparing to continue doing so
for a while longer.

It’s a bit depressing to be honest and I’ve been looking for
ways to get the proper mental state for what could be an extended
stay at home.

My friend Brad Feld wrote a blog post yesterday calling this

“spring break at home.”
I like that framing. It puts a
positive spin on this challenging situation.

Our oldest daughter told me that a lot of great work has been
done by people when they were under quarantine for the plague.

So I’ve been thinking about what I can accomplish with all of
this new found time. Of course I plan to work as USV is open for
But I also have down time which I am now going to
spend at home.

We certainly could binge on all of the TV shows we’ve never
watched (Friday Night Lights, Breaking Bad, The Wire, etc, etc) but
somehow I doubt that’s where we are headed.

Our younger daughter suggested I learn French on Duolingo.
That’s a possibility. She also suggested I finally learn to cook.
That probably isn’t. Thankfully the Gotham Gal is a fantastic
cook so I’m set there.

My point is this. It’s a shitty situation we are all in right
now. But I’m going to try to make the best of my spring break at
home and I hope that all of you can too.
