It's been so long since I last wrote a blog, I don't know where to start. Especially since the world has been upside down for the past year or so. I have had so many emotions throughout this whole Covid 19 pandemic and have wanted to sit down and write a blog about all of it many times. But, as I think it has been for most through all of this, I've mainly been living in survival mode and collecting my thoughts enough to write some kind of coherent ramblings has obviously proved too much thus far.
One of the biggest themes for me has been about a sense of disconnection. The lack of physical contact, being shut off from everyone through all the lockdowns and this constant fear of catching/spreading the virus which turns into the biggest anxiety when just being around other people. It's all been too much. It really struck me when our Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, revealed the recent 'roadmap' out of restrictions here in the UK. (It even feels weird stating my country knowing the fact this has affected people globally!). The last part of unlocking for 21st June that stated 'no legal restrictions on social contact'. It struck me as such madness that we have been living in a world where it has actually been illegal to simply socialise with other human beings!!
