I’m tired….

I'm tired. I'm tired of being in lockdown. I'm tired of people supporting the lockdown. I'm tired of people not supporting the lockdown. I'm tired of people railing about "the situation" before they've read all the facts. I'm tired of the mixed messages from our leaders - local and international.

A re-imagining: life after this Corona

Imagine - can you - a new world? It's incomprehensible that less than a hundred days ago, no-one had heard of the Novel Corona virus now known as Covid-19.
