The perception of time is so subjective, so relative, isn´t it? For most of us, 2020 was dreadfully long. Maybe because of the endless lockdown, the uncertainty regarding the pandemic, the shock we were all in. On the contrary, I’d say 2021 moved at breakneck speed, so fast that Christmas arrived suddenly, almost overnight. The one million dollar question  undoubtedly is what 2022 has in store for humanity. Will the Covid-19 nightmare be over? Will life return to normal? Will there be a “new normal”, a “new essential”?  Will there be slow-healing scars, physical and psychological? Which lessons to be learnt?  Have we realized how deeply and inextricably interconnected all of us are?  Lots of questions and very few answers. Human fragility and vulnerability exposed like never before. “Carpe Diem”, says Robin Williams in “Dead Poets’ Society”. Seize the day.  The most appropriate motto for these tough times. I still believe the best is yet to come. Happy New Year, guys!
