The editorial schedule of my columns forces me to try to look a couple of weeks into the future. Not just any future, but yours. The hope is that what I decide to write about today exists in the intersection of evergreen and relevance that will make it interesting enough for you to want to read it some days down the line.

Today’s a bit different. As I write, I have Covid, but I’m confident that by the time you read this it will have exited my system. This essay is about what I learned from having it. So I’m writing this in the past tense. Which means I’m predicting my future here.
