The virus lockdown, if not hermetic, allows us to move around. Walking reboots the mind and opens it for creativity, new ideas or deep reflections. Walk, think, be creative. Just keep the distance and stay safe!

One cannot defy a virus, but one can and must defy the panic and that standstill that is dragging us into a recession that will prove a much traumatic experience for a huge part of the society, eventually everyone.
