It stalks us from the canopy. Dropping down and latching onto our backs as we pass underneath.
Its impact is real, but subtle. You can’t see it, but you know it’s there. You can feel it. Distracting you. Draining your energy. It thrives while we wither. There’s no magic cure, but the human body is resilient and can fight it off if we are healthy.
Knowing what is potentially out there gives us an advantage. We can prepare. Always carry an umbrella.
