Google Meet

Good morning. Thank you for visiting my page.

Yesterday, I met with Taylor and Seale Publisher, Mary Custureri, on Google Meet in preparation for our Daytona Writers Guild virtual meeting on Saturday.

It was my first Google Meet. My Florida Writers Foundation holds meetings on Zoom. In this time of the coronavirus, we must physically distance ourselves, but business must continue. Physical meetings have become virtual gatherings.

Socializing must carry on because most people aren’t meant to live in seclusion. As Barbra Streisand sang in Funny Girl, “People who need people are the luckiest people in the world.”

And we need people. Feelings of loneliness and isolation can impact our mental health. Today is National Suicide Prevention Day. Reach out to friends struggling while quarantined with a phone call, or go to Facebook, Google Meet, or Zoom. Physically distancing does not have to be social distancing. We live in a virtual world.
