The lockdown has changed us, the way we look at things, objects, other life forms, value of things that we can not buy with money. It has brought in new paradigms, new thought-processes, new attitudes.
Now we look at metal and other surfaces like doorknobs, bolts, hand-rails, etc. especially out of the home with suspect. We are getting accustomed to face-maks and sanitizer. Our window to the outside world has also changed a bit.
We have found new things to do, reinvented many of our lost interests. To some, it might be gardening, or to somebody else, it would be cooking or even watching good movies or listening to music. In another way, is it that nature is asking us to re-invent ourselves and the way we look at the planet and other fellow species?
