I was listening to a song the other day that first became popular when I was a junior in high school. It was written by Peter Yarrow, one of the trio of Peter, Paul and Mary. The song has become a classic. It’s called, “Puff the Magic Dragon.”
Boredom seems to be a real enemy during this extended period of social isolation. When we’re in school, the only unstructured time is lunch. We know how long our classes last. We know who we’re going to see in the hall in between classes and everything seems to fit nicely into the pre-packaged day. Not so much now!
