How is it May already? When I started this series of blog posts it was March. What happened to April?
It’s curious how the lockdown is stretching and distorting time. Each day can feel like a week, but each week seems to fly by. We have daily landmarks, such as the daily Downing Street briefing, but they soon merge into one, indistinct press conference.
What we don’t have is a sense of an ending. We roll on, day to day, without any concrete goal. Days, become weeks and then, without even realising, we’re months into a lockdown. I can’t believe I’ll be writing day 40 next!
My routine may have changed slightly (see day 36) but I am continuing to edit and write. Why, then, are months disappearing into the void of lockdown?
