For some it became the future of all sums, for some others, it didn’t. The present now is a future of w2020, and it shows again (as any other crisis) that the (internal) outcome of the external conditions depends on the person, and not the conditions themselves; some used it (consciously or not) as a means for transformation and self-awareness, some others were dragged by it here and there.
Very beautiful choice of words, Patrick. There’s something different than the usual way in which you express yourself. Like you had put aside for a few minutes the poet, the narrator, “this” and “that”, and you just “talked”.
