COVID 19 Update
Things are pretty unsettled these days, so I thought I’d send out a newsletter to put some of my ideas down. Reading/watching/listening to the news is truly overwhelming. However, I tend to be a glass-half-full kind of guy, so I’ve been trying to think of the up-side to the current situation. I’ve come up with two things that I think are of benefit to us all.
First, with social distancing and the closure of venues/sporting events/bars/restaurants, this has given everyone a collective break, making us all slow down just a bit. I’ve had friends say they have brought back game-night, pulling games out of cupboards where they have been sitting for years. So take a moment to enjoy the peace this situation has created.
Second, and this just might be my optimism talking, but I think the global nature of this situation has made the world come together a little tighter. Despite travel bans and the rest, we are dealing with this plague as an entire planet. That is both historic and encouraging. Scientists and researchers all over the world are working together to turn things around. When the entire human race pulls together I think we can accomplish incredible things.
Now, what does all this have to do with Banjoe Vacations? For our Downtown Asheville Condo, we are planning on holding that open and available for any health-care workers who need to self-isolate. This might be because they live at home with immune-compromised family members and work in high-risk areas. Our goal is to help support our community as much as we can to help get through this mess. The Enchanted Cottage will remain open and available.
Stay safe and be well.
