As our modern-day plague began to ripple through the USA, I wondered why community-minded health measures weren’t obvious to everyone? In “Pandemic World: How My Communal Past Helps Me Cope,” I explore how my fifteen years on a hippie commune help me get by today. Maybe it will help you too. I hope you enjoy and share!
