Up next on Way of the Renaissance Man… a special audio essay presentation
titled, “Make the Coronavirus Kindness Choice.”
The following audio essay was written and narrated by Jim Woods. A slightly edited
version of this essay was first published on March 18th in Jim’s weekly column,
“The Deep Woods” which can be found at JimWoodsInvesting.com.
The world is a very different place today than it was just a month ago.
In my area of professional expertise, financial markets, we went from raging bull market
to a growling bear market in approximately three weeks. Yet financial markets are not the
biggest difference in our world.
The biggest difference is that the coronavirus has provoked and unsettling mix of fear,
uncertainty, angst, anxiety and a very real sense of impending doom in the minds of
billions around the globe.
All over the planet, people are being quarantined, or are self-isolating, or practicing social
distancing or whatever the proper term might be for any particular situation. In the United
States, many store shelves are bare of essentials such as toilet paper, paper towels and
More importantly, many stores have experienced shortages of meat, milk, eggs and other
vital food stuffs.
Today’s coronavirus milieu reminds me of the words of the great Thomas Paine, who
famously wrote, “These are the times that try men’s souls.”
