My parents
and their parents
all lived through at least one war
I have not.
Corona is the closest I have been to national isolation and lockdown.
I am starting to realise that war is all about uncertainty.
There is an outward war, at the front
and then a psychological one, inside us
both are about minimising risk
both are important
and both need resilience and hope
but I am wondering which one has more long term consequences.
It is an open question I suppose…
