Hibernation
2020

Hibernation
Hibernation is a metaphor for the experience of the past few months with the pandemic. We’ve come to expect the Unexpected. Confinement came suddenly. It resembled a distorted vacation where each day was a Sunday from yesteryear where everything was closed. The imposed pause in our hectic pace was Calming at first, but it was soon replaced by Concerns and Mixed Feelings. Melancholy, Boredom and Inconsistency joined in despite some Loosening of the rules that helped us to manage. The end of confinement brought with it a False Joy, since too many constraints remained. However, there will be a Silver Lining. We don’t know when, but it will come. When the confinement and the constraints end, there will be a Rebirth and we will again enjoy typical human interactions.
