Now, when I go for my morning walk along the promenade I have to wear a mask, as does everyone else, and it is as if I’m not really there. Nobody speaks, nobody even looks at me. The mask has made me invisible. Occasionally I will pass one of my neighbours and they will stop and speak. And then what a lot better I feel. Before the pandemic, I hadn’t realised just how much those casual greetings could lift your spirits. I hope that when this is over and we all return to normality, that people won’t have forgotten how to greet each other as they used to do.
Happy Christmas to all my readers. Here’s hoping you all get to spend it with the people you love and that 2021 brings us all good health and prosperity.
