# "How to Survive a Plague": Part 2/$n$ of a premature book report

## Hit the pause

I started this series intending to add semiregular installments. Perhaps I’d add one every other month or so. It turns out I’m just not up to it, right now.

Someone important to me died during this plague. Reading and blogging on this book was and has been a way to connect with them—to honor their life. The experience has been rich and raw and meaningful. I hope that not too far off in the future, I’ll be in a better place to take up this task. Until then, take care of you and, to the extent you can bear, look upon those around you with kindness in your heart.
