Before we didn’t have time (and we didn’t use it) to go to the park, to talk nonsense on the phone for hours, to watch a movie, to listen to a bird sing, to cook, to read …..
Until now we had not discovered the advantages of teleworking, a collective novelty, and how to combine it with family life; the use of zoom and other activities.

The return will bring us changes: greater flexibility, distinguishing what´s urgent from what´s important, becoming aware that we are ALL vulnerable .
