2020: In Retrospect


A year that simply seems to charge relentlessly past us, accelerated by the COVID 2019 pandemic and all the ensuring chaos.

It has already been 294 days of lockdowns, fear and increasing helplessness. To the point that it’s simply considered by many to be a “lost” year, despite the promise that it once held.
