Since the pandemic broke out in March last year, it is as if nothing certain exists anymore, as if we were constantly hanging over a huge boulder about to give way, we are there, helpless, only with Fear and anxiety and we just keep thinking about how it would be and what we could do if we were not stuck on that trembling boulder. It is like this every day, we all think about the trips we could go on, the hugs we could give and receive, the smiles that we could give without having to fight against an invisible enemy, from which we do not really know how to defend ourselves. We are forced to hide behind a mask. Our greatest source of expression, the face, is lost. We feel locked up, we do not really know what to do, every day, we find ourselves in a different zone, yellow, orange, red, we do not know what to expect anymore. However, we must also look at the a positive side of the pandemic, the one and only probably, that one that made us aware and allowed us to wish for and appreciate what our concept of everyday life and normality was, such as a hug from a friend, going to see a film at the cinema, going out for lunch and staying out late at night. In all this fear and sadness, people have hope, they sing on the roofs of their houses or look out over their balconies even though they may have just lost someone dear to them, they continue to hope and sing, looking for the light at the end of the tunnel, waiting to go back to a normal life, to live and show a smile, to no longer be afraid for themselves and for their loved ones, to go back to dancing, to breathe again without a mask, but above all, to come back to life !!
