Life in the times of Corona – Captains log: Day 26

Good Friday. Its a different Easter weekend from any other in living memory. People stayed at home, and breakaways to the beach or somewhere special. Throughout the day I kept thinking about my trip to Israel 3 years ago at this time of year. My visit coincided with Easter weekend, because I was going toContinue reading “Life in the times of Corona – Captains log: Day 26”

Life in the time of Corona – Captains log: Day 25

The highlight of the day was that I accidentally called a work associate by his last name, in stead of his first. We had a little laugh over it in a teleconference. I am sad, because I was planning to go on a holiday for the Easter weekend and the following week. I was planningContinue reading “Life in the time of Corona – Captains log: Day 25”

Life in the time of Corona: Captains log – Day 24

Spending this much time in a social distancing situation is bound to lead to some introspection. Whatever your current situation, it is very likely different from how you thought your year would look when you said Happy New year 98 days ago. In less than 100 days everything we took for granted has changed. AllContinue reading “Life in the time of Corona: Captains log – Day 24”

Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 23

The sun is out and the days are getting warmer. The trees outside my window is starting to sprout young leaves. Nature is continuing the cycle of growth and life regardless of the global health crisis. Inside their houses people are worrying about the world economy, job losses and literally staying alive, while outside theContinue reading “Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 23”

Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 22

The world is going crazy. I am flooded with memes, good ones and bad ones and sometimes I am not even sure if it’s really funny or whether anything is funny because everything is upside down. When I started writing this blog I expected that the world will go crazy and maybe they will playContinue reading “Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 22”

Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 21

Today was a lovely warm day, hopefully the first of many more. Despite the social distancing measures, a lot of people ventured out to soak up the sun, outside apartments people were enjoying the afternoon sun sitting appropriate distances apart and socialising. Nature continues her transformation into spring and I enjoy the opportunity to goContinue reading “Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 21”

Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 20

It was a lovely spring day, sunny, and as far as I could tell, not windy. I spent a few hours on my balcony enjoying my flowers and doing some water colours, while my neighbours who have gardens practiced home workouts and probably overheard my eclectic music collection. Nobody threw rotten vegetables at me, soContinue reading “Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 20”

Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 19

It’s the weekend! It feels like this week flew by in meetings and to-do lists. Finally we make it to Friday night and time for drinks with colleagues, but online on a video call! While the majority of the world population is stuck at home, doing their bit to save humanity , a whole newContinue reading “Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 19”

Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 18

I didn’t sleep well. I think I got preoccupied about whether or not I had some of the symptoms of COVID-19 and that formed the basis for a bunch of turbulent dreams. Luckily I can’t remember anything, other than I woke up in the small hours feeling unsettled. I find that social distancing is gettingContinue reading “Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 18”

Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 17

Today is April fools day, but it is no laughing matter. I can no longer tell you if something happened yesterday or Friday two weeks ago. Its just one big blur of time. Get up, get dressed, sit in front of a screen. Go to bed. Repeat. Work carries on at a crazy pace, IContinue reading “Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 17”
