Two questions:

  1. How do you keep yourself occupied and healthy while shut-in? (I'm on day 16 of self-isolating due to Covid-19, after going to the ER the doctor's determined I have a viral respiratory illness (aka likely Covid19) and staring at screens and being immobile in my room is really getting me).
  2. What do you think of the anime Welcome the NHK (or other cultural references that deal with Hikikomori lifestyle)?

Yes, please answer this one! I want to know about the person, Jamal, as a colleague and friend. As horrible as what has happened, I want to hear the humanizing sides of who he was as a person. It's hard to feel connected to him when it's just outrage surrounding the act of his murder.

As someone who has also drifted away from the church (absolutely agnostic) but appreciates what religion can do for individuals and the positive things the church can do for communities, I really appreciate this perspective.

Thank you so much for sharing Jason. At least we do still have his written pieces strongly written in his own voice to keep and remember him by. I'm glad that you have a wonderful memory of him during a special holiday. All my best to you, Karen, his colleagues, and of course his family.

We have that in rural Canada, too.
