The chief of the World Health Organisation believes that the Covid pandemic ‘may be over within two years’ according to headlines today. And I’ve been reflecting on how quickly – and for many millions devastatingly – our lives can and do change.

Tragedy and loss has been immense in 2020. As I gaze out of my window – my present-day ‘bubble’ – I wonder to what extent the ordinary healthful and humane hopes of worldwide humankind will usher in a better ‘new normal’ the other side of defensiveness and fear?
