My Covid19June 2, 2021
During the first lockdown, I was on furlough leave, isolated from friends and family, like so many others…I felt alone, worried, scared and vulnerable. I felt a huge sense guilt for my partner at the time who was a nurse, working all hours, exhausted, stressed, but most of all trying to constantly reassure friends and family, when in reality, she was terrified.
What’s most interesting and incredible during this unique and uncertain time, to me, is that among all the awful suffering, illness, deaths, global economic impact and massive disruption to everyday life to all of us effected by Covid19…simultaneously the world is healing, breathing, recovering..it seems as though Mother Nature has taken control to help our planet by forcing us to stop and let our world begin to heal itself before it’s too late.
It is incredible how at the same time as causing devastation, Coronavirus has provoked such kindness, respect and appreciation in so many people around the world, which I hope will stay long after the virus..it seems like an extreme, harsh lesson, but I hope we learn from this…I hope when we come out of this pandemic we find a way to live better, cleaner, kinder and more respectful, to not only our key workers, our NHS and each other, but to our plant too.
