The birds are twitting outside my window. They go ahead all day long. No other sound interferes with their singing. Humans are all shut inside their homes, and nature takes its space back.
I’m sitting at my desk, trying to find the inspiration: I should start a new chapter of my novel today; but I can’t focus. I can’t stop turning my head toward the window.
Silent London in so beautiful. The sun has just popped out after been hiding beneath a thick layer of clouds all morning, the green trees sparkle.
Our lives have changed dramatically in the past few weeks, and I have a feeling that when we’ll be able to leave our houses, the world we’ll find will be much different from the world we left. Many people have already lost their jobs and many others will in the near future; economy will be devastated. If this perspective scared me at first, now I’ve started thinking that we could actually turn all this mess into an opportunity.
This crisis can be a chance to start over, to build a new economy based on social and environmental justice.
I found a very interesting article about how this pandemic could shape the future of our world that gave me some hope; you can find it here if you wanna have a look.
I think this is the right time to sit down and think what to do next.
The future of our society depends on how we’ll respond to this crisis, so better to think it through because if we make the wrong decision, the worst could happen, even end up trapped in our house forever, like the characters of the dystopian novel I’m working on. But that’s a different story, or maybe not?
