We humans, especially residents of big cities, love to plan. Everyone has a plan for a week, a month, a year, and more. The schedule can be so tight that we do not have time to think: "Who am I, and who are these people around?" Waking up early, jogging / exercising - breakfast in a cafe, meetings, work, dinner in a restaurant, cinema, sleep, and the circle is endless.
Now, suddenly, it turned out so that suddenly there is no need to run anywhere. We are closed within the walls of our home with family, children, and most unexpectedly, with ourselves. And we swim in what we created. You cannot leave, run away, you cannot betray responsibilities: there is only what you have prepared, to communicate with those who are nearby, to look the way you really are and experience what you have accumulated in your head and heart. This vacuum reveals the truth from which it was so easy to hide in the hustle and bustle of the standard schedule. Time to look at yourself, dive to the very depths of your ocean. The time when you are seen through the thickness of this water, as through a lens. It's time to think, work, get better.
