Life in a COVID world

The COVID pandemic has felt like driving along a highway in the full stream of traffic and suddenly having to put one’s foot on the breaks and do an emergency break. Just months ago I was preparing for the installation of an exhibition on the history of indigenous and enslaved people at the George Museum. Suddenly the museums were closed and the breaks stopped, not just for this exhibition, but for everyone as this virus looms its ominous threat on us all. Yet I am amazed at the way businesses have adapted wherever this was possible. I am also in awe of the enormous goodwill and sharing by ordinary people, who have reached out to help one another. This is a time of challenge, a frightening time, but also a time of reflection and gratitude. To all those essential services workers: doctors, nurses, ambulance staff and supermarket staff to name but a few: Thank you.
