Tragedy by Kirsten Bruening

During the global Covid-19 pandemic, we often feel lonely and abandoned because of the ban on contact. At some point we read all the books at home, watched every film. We know every tree in the forest, we have ordered everything necessary and unnecessary on the Internet and then we have to find out that the earth keeps turning despite all the loneliness. That we have to be grateful if it hasn’t hit us or our friends and family and we go out with a smile and the knowledge that tomorrow will be a good day.
