Well, here we are... a Pandemic. I think in my short life of 33 years I have been lucky to avoid major political conflicts that resulted in wars, international affairs and also virus outbreaks. However I guess nature - human nature - always brings something new to our doorstep. Not a long ago it was 2019 and it was a rough year. For me personally moving cross country; getting a job that turned out to be a disaster and leaving it after one day of working there; losing many people in our life most notably Aron and Rene and not being able to do things that would help getting closer to financial balance. I was happy that 2019 was ending. I was looking forward to change, to travel and to explore more in the northern hemisphere of the globe in Scottish land... until a small microbe happened to turn our world upside down.
I'm not going to repeat the news or start using colourful metaphors about the panic buying or toilet-paper crisis... we all have enough of that nonsense and frankly I would just make myself feel bad before going to bed... and I don't want that. :)
The reason why I just wanted to share my thoughts that I hope you are dear reader are OK wherever you are. I know that things right now looks really bad, but we can live through this. We have to live through this and grab that ray of hope that if we do the right things, things will get better soon. I cannot stress enough that I'm overwhelmingly looking forward to the day when we all go to our local GP/Doctor and just get the vaccine. The day when we can resume travelling to see the globe. The day when we can finally get together and watch an episode of Star Trek, or going to conventions and be surrounded with like minded people face to face. Will we still shake hands? I don't know...
For me, one thing is clear though: Humanity has to find a way to cope better with itself. We have to be more caring and less needy, more loving and less devious, but most importantly, KIND! _\\//
