Another day, another photo walk. I guess we’re lucky we can come out few times a day but part of me thinks that this semi-confinement doesn’t actually do anything but harm our economy and mental health.
In many ways, it just doesn’t make any sense. All non-essential shops are closed (small independent boutiques, hairdressers etc) AND book shops and libraries! Yes guys, the books in France are not essential… I’ll give you a few seconds to digest that.
But big supermarkets are open, where there is no limit of how many people can go in… go figure. Parks remain open and lots of people gather with their kids to get fresh air and stay sane so social distancing out of the window.
These rules are so vague, with many interpretations that I fear we may be doing this juggling throughout the next year too.
Time will tell. For now, a cup of coffee and off I go. Streets are calling…
Let’s finish up with John Lennon lyrics from the song “Isolation” :
We’re afraid of everyone
Afraid of the sun
The sun will never disappear
But the world may not have many years
