Covid-19 Lockdown diary: Day 60 or "The nature blooms again!"

By PVM | Art of Happiness | 20 May 2020

When this lockdown started, 60 days ago, we had no idea how our life will change. By now we appreciate more a walk in the forest and we have a different concept about what is essential and what is not. 

While humans stayed at home, the nature didn't stood still, and bloomed. With less pollution, less human intervention and more environmental awareness, we seen many things that were hard to believe before 2020. Dolphins are swimming in Venice cannals, wild goats are running on the streets in Scotish villages, the pollution level dropped by 17%, and many more examples.

I started my day by having breakfast in bed with my son, enjoying cinnamon and raises bagels, with fig, strawberry and blackcurrant jams, and random fruits, all while watching Baby Loony Toons and Scooby Doo.2c87a2c8885c6ea999c3e5c7eb02396f1b3527c3c5f3ddd6ec60662044d13a2e.jpegBefore midday I went through the pictures from our recent outings into the woods, parks and riversides, and I realised that some of the shoots are beautiful. Today I want to share the good vibes with the world and spread some positive and kindness. I compiled a video with some of the pictures so treat you eyes and brain with wildlife and colours.

Aftermaths of the Covid-19 pandemic will haunt the planet for years, and the Covid-19 crisis and climate change must be tackled together. Even if health professionals warned about Covid-19’s devastating effects at a very early stage, only a few governments acted in line with the risks. Despite laudable efforts, we have not reduced our greenhouse gas emissions  The next 5 years will determine whether we stand any chance of preventing the impacts of climate change, or the Covid-19 disruption just escalated the issue.
