I’m not the first person to say this, and it’s likely not even the first time I say this, but here goes :
This whole lockdown life is a lot more bearable because we live in the age of digital connectivity.
In the last 48 hours I’ve interacted with friends in China, India, Romania, Spain, Switzerland, South Africa, England, the USA and Peru. In some cases it was just a text message and in others it was a call or even a video call. I was able to see how my friends and acquaintances are, how they react to our conversations, and talk about shared interests and experiences.
I am not only thankful for the technology that makes this all possible, but also for each and every one who forms part of my life.
Be kind. Stay safe
