War of the new normal

The news everyone's been dreading has arrived. The COVID-19 Omicron variant is now on New Zealand shores. Sure, it's just one case... but it starts with just one, doesn't it?

The prospect of opening the borders by April next year, and shortened quarantine stay is now in jeopardy. Like everyone else, we have plans for the summer. That's over the next couple of months. It's proving difficult to plan over a longer period of time.

But we simply must have some semblance of normalcy somehow... though the 'new normal' is taking over. So the question is... what does 'normal' exactly look like?

I'm constantly reminded of the movie 'War of the Worlds' where - spoiler alert - all the alien devastation is halted by the common cold virus which the aliens have no protection from. This movie is so relevant on this age.
