"What is Essential is Invisible to the Eye"

During my quarantined life, I recently reread my tattered copy of "The Little Prince." Given the strange world we have navigated this last year, it seemed an appropriate time to revisit this classic and take stock of important life lessons.
I read it with fresh eyes, drawing parallels between the strangeness of pandemic times and the prince's fanciful space travel. As life has been pared back to the basics, I was particularly struck by the author's emphasis on what is most essential for healthy navigation of life's challenges.
