We’ve been leading extremely crazy lives. Hustling fast lives where we don’t even know which day or which year we’re in anymore. No time to eat, to time to make for friends, no time to exercise, no time to do anything that matters. Because we’re so scared that life would pass us by without us being able to achieve the next big thing or buy that latest trend that we don’t even need. Cities are full of people living in huge towers and no one even knowing who their neighbor is. Who has time for that? Fast consumerism and instant gratification at its best. Pollution all over. In the air we breathe, the food we eat, the water we drink. Anxious and depressed people on the rise because this life is just not easy to sustain. It took a virus, something we can’t even see, to slow the whole world down. I would like to say it also made us remember our humanity again but then I remember that people are fighting over toilet paper ( and this is where I think Darwin’s natural selection theory has been disproved). The question that remains. When all this is over, is the world going to go back to what it was? Or are we going to learn our lesson? Song: The Head and The Heart-Let’s be Still
