Day 2907: Widespread

When you see the word “widespread,” what first comes to mind?

My answer is “pandemic,” because COVID-19 is widespread, here and now, everywhere on this planet.

Because the pandemic is widespread, there’s widespread fear, worry, confusion, anger, grief, helplessness, denial, illness, and death.

As vaccines become widespread, there’s also fear, worry, confusion, many other feelings, AND, at last, hope.

In case there’s widespread wonder about where the word “widespread” came from today, here is the Daily Bitch Calendar for December 16, 2020.

You don’t want to be in an area of widespread incompetence and general lack of concern during a pandemic, but that’s exactly where I am. However, widespread competence and caring are waiting in the wings (including the West Wing).

My travels are NOT widespread these days, so here are all my other recent images:

If I eat too much of Michael’s delicious cooking and that very rich ice cream, my body will be more widespread.

Here’s Widespread Panic with “Up All Night.”

Widespread Panic is a band from Georgia, USA, and there is widespread interest in the two senate races there. If Democrats win both of those races, cooperation within the U.S. government will be more widespread.

I have widespread acceptance for any thoughts or feelings you have in reaction to this “Widespread” post.

Widespread thanks to all who help me create this widespread blog, including YOU!

  4. I know widespread ‘good’ things are usually easier to assimilate, as ‘good’ is natural, spontaneous, and requires no explanation. The ‘bitter’ is that which must be sweetened somehow. Humans have to adjust, while animals go on living.
