Orson Welles had it down long before the term "social distancing" evolved.
This scene in "Citizen Kane" is part of a trajectory that shows first the younger, happier Kanes sitting close beside each other at the table. Their marriage has evolved to this.
We're all learning a little bit about Social Distancing (or spatial distancing, as I like to call it) these days. I'm talking with my neighbor from across the street. We are farther apart than six feet -- and that's just fine with us. If I go for a walk, I take care to keep that distance with others. My roaming zone stretches from my house to the Ditch.
On the way, I may see other walkers, a cyclist, children with their parents headed toward the playground, the occasional wandering cat and especially dog walkers. Rick makes his weekly visit to Apple Market, a few blocks from his house, for our groceries. But we are all respectful of space.
Even the birds at the Ditch seem to have received the message!
I suspect Skippy the Chipmunk is glad that Lizzie is keeping distance between them (through no desire of her own!).
Even Rick and I must keep apart and that's really hard! We are beginning to look like the Kanes! The difference? We still love and like each other. The Kanes? Not so much!
So, here's to staying apart so we can soon all be together! Stay well and stay home!
