We will not go back to normal
Normal never was.
Our Pre Corona existence was not normal
Other than we normalised greed, inequity, exhaustion
Depletion, extraction, disconnection, confusion,
Rage, hoarding, hate and lack.

We are being given the opportunity
To stitch a new garment.
One that fits all of humanity

eye of the camera. It's also about embracing and being applauded by
actual audiences and not by "likes" and "heart" emojis.
I have enjoyed the riches of the world's greatest museums and cultural
spaces. Operas, ballets, online tours, ancient history talks, cooking
lessons, language lessons - my days have been filled with so much that I
did not feel one day blurring into the next.
