This is the first time in my generation that there has been a global issue that is akin to a world war, this time with no Switzerland. Borders closed, people told to stay, home draw the blinds, and hope for the best. The city's have become ghost towns and for the first time since Adam & Eve there is a global collective agenda to which everyone is actively contributing to. Utilising all that's available, adapting and evolving, it makes everyone stop, reflect and re-evaluate. People are reaching out not with thoughts of ‘me and mine’ but of ‘we and us’. So maybe we shouldn't forget so quickly the time we had to isolate to find ourselves.
