In spite of all the awful and tragic things this pandemic  has caused and is still causing worldwide, I believe it must be –at the same time- an unbelievable source of inspiration for artists, in the widest sense of the word. Writers, playwrights, cinematographers, painters, poets, could all draw ideas and stuff from this unique moment to spark their creativity. Actually, I dare say we´ve never experienced before -as a planet-  such vulnerability, such fear, such fragility, such interdependence. I do hope we can – years from now –tell our grandchildren and great grandchildren what happened way back in 2020 (a leap year), and how it somehow made humankind turn over a new leaf.  As if it were a tale, a fairy tale, with a happy ending.
