What will be the lessons learnt from the COVID-19 pandemic which has swept the globe? I believe one will be the new levels of appreciation which will emerge.

Maybe for once we will truly appreciate the value of family and the support and togetherness, we all crave. So many are separated from loved ones now by quarantine or isolation not to mention those who have passed on alone, surrounded by strangers.

Maybe we will truly appreciate our jobs and the daily routine of work which brings its own intrinsic reward. Never before in modern times has every industry worldwide been impacted so significantly without exception.

Maybe for the first time at last, customers will feel appreciated and not a burden or bother. What an opportunity now for every business to reach out to existing and potential customers and deliver exceptional customer experience.

Maybe the ability to give and receive a hug will be more appreciated in a post COVID-19 world.

Maybe socializing at events, concerts, in restaurants, at the beach, in our parks or in church will take on new dimensions.

Maybe the freedom to travel once again, to experience different cultures and mores even for work will have new significance.

Maybe we will understand and value the work and sacrifice of our frontline health workers and supporting staff as they put their lives at risk for us.

Maybe at last, our teachers will receive the full recognition they deserve as not all of us have the patience to teach our children.

Maybe school won’t be such a dreaded place anymore, and classmates will have a new sense of bonding.

Maybe as taxpayers our contribution to national development will be recognized and every effort made by Government to protect the rights and wellbeing of its citizens.

Just maybe…

I have always known myself to be better at expressing myself on paper than verbally. Maybe that’s why I feel so unheard for most of my life. This is my attempt to change and the reason I created this blog. Writing is second nature for me and here I hope to grow and develop this and most of all to be heard. My writings will range from topical societal issues, motivational pieces, blogs to challenge and stimulate thought to matters of Faith and Christian living. My dual passion is to create and post images of this planet we call home which will move and evoke some sense of wonder. Beauty surrounds us from the details of a wildflower to a stunning sunset. My images attempt to convey the rawness and spectacle of life and to pass on what I felt at that moment.
