It's not a word you hear very often these days: happy. Sure, how could anyone be truly happy right now?

For living in the shadow of Covid-19 means precisely that - living in some kind of shadowland, not knowing what next week or next month will bring. Will there be a spark of light at the end of the next restrictive tunnel, a spark that might allow us to sit inside a restaurant or a theatre again, or wander joyfully around a museum or an art gallery, or will we go straight from one tunnel to another, thundering along like a runaway train, maybe finding ourselves in an even longer and darker shaft than the particular tunnel we are currently travelling through? Who knows?
