It’s so hard to put up with this uncertainty. Every two weeks we are told that the lockdown will last for two weeks more. And so on and so forth. We don’t know for sure when (or if) we’ll be able to go back to our previous lives. Moreover, most of us feel that we’ll  probably witness the birth of a new world, a world that awaits us once this pandemic is over. A whole new start. Before and after the Coronavirus. Sounds both exciting and scary. Individual, social, economic and political changes will have to take place. Are we ready to rise to the occasion, I wonder. Are we resourceful and flexible enough to face this huge challenge?  Will we be able to reinvent ourselves in order to survive? So many questions, so many doubts, so many concerns. «Bewitched, bothered and bewildered”, as Ella would sing.
