Has that always been there?

Evi Evangelou, 41

Since the beginning of April’s lockdown caused by the pandemic of Covid-19, it feels like time has slowed down for the whole world. We started finding pleasure in small things. On my daily walks around my neighbourhood, I started observing the environment and nature from a different perspective and questioning how changes occurred. I have been impressed by the way plants/fauna can grow in unexpected places, such as mushrooms on tree trunks or grass on a fence pile. Now more than ever that sustainability is so important for the preservation of our planet as well as our lives, I feel that it is a great opportunity for everyone to take a step back to explore and enjoy the surrounding that we so often take for granted. Nature can show us the way to adjust to changes and new circumstances.
