The most surprising thing for me about the lockdown is how much better I'm able to concentrate than I was before. Maybe it's the whiff of mortality, the sense of impending economic doom or the fact of a single defining global phenomenon, but I find it's easier to have perspective and focus on the task at hand than it was before this all started. I'm reading books again, more productive at work, listening better. Wouldn't necessarily have expected that.
Once the lockdown is finally over I'm looking forward to doing something fabulously mundane: heading back downtown to do a bunch of little errands — like get some rolls of film developed, get a haircut, browse the English book section of my favourite bookshop, and have a big long dinner with family and friends in a crowded restaurant.
