I don’t know about you, but I often come back to something and it’s not quite how I remembered it.  Sometimes, it’s better.

Scanning through some photos in search of a theme for this blog, and thinking that we are all, to some degree or another, retuning to ‘normal’, I came across this, taken from outside the doors to our warehouse in Rhymney a while ago – it’s stunning, isn’t it.

Maybe a sign of hope for things to come?  Whatever the future holds for us, we are having to adjust our lives and businesses to a world where a plague is no longer something confined to the pages of mediaeval history books.  What we think of as normal now won’t be the same as it was before. 

Our lives have changed and our memories are already only a partial record even of the recent past.  One thing is sure, as a society we are massively better equipped economically and scientifically to deal with Covid-19 / SARS-CoV-2 than any generation in human history.  And we are, after all, the most inventive and adaptable species on the planet.

Who knows?  The new normal might be better than the old.
