Reflecting on the current situation with Covid-19.

My dad is extremely fearful about getting it and is keeping everything that he has control of under control. It’s like he put a massive mask around the house to keep me, him and Max (the dog) safe. Some people want to see this situation as a monochrome image. People with the virus and people without it, the blighted and the lucky. And since I was suspected of having it for a period of two weeks, it made a big impact on everything I could do two weeks before the actual government lockdown.
