I feel more alone in public than alone at home because of the masks. Not seeing the humanity in a person’s face is achingly isolating. Without a face to connect with people don’t exist.

And, I can demonstrate there is no common material available to the public that is efficient or effective in protecting against C19 infection.

So, I’m being shut off from humanity because a state gubernatorial mandate demands I do so. If I don’t comply I’m not allowed to be around other humans. What Orwellian wet dream am I living in?
