During the current lockdown I am enjoying the peace and tranquillity of my garden, being able to hear the birdsong and the bees buzzing contentedly amongst the flowers, without the sound of distant traffic. The skies are blue and the air is clear as pollution levels have dropped. Stress levels have fallen away too in this slower-paced lifestyle. I almost wish it could stay like this, but I am missing access to museums and galleries and the opportunity to travel. Let’s hope that these ways of living will continue to influence the way in which we live our lives in the future, with patience, tolerance, thoughtfulness and support for others, all at a slower pace than before.
