My life, like the lives of many others, has changed as a result of this pandemic and, upon reflection, it all happened in the blink of eye.
Stepping into the unknown
To this day I can recall the ‘see ya’ to friends in the office back in March 2020 that unknowingly would mean see you when I see you (or as it turned out, see you on a conference call later this year).
At the beginning of the pandemic, so much was unknown. From where I was in Melbourne, I witnessed the pandemic unfolding in China and in Europe and I was living it as an observer from afar.
I was so far removed from any real threat it would have been difficult to conceive the impact it would later turn out to have on my life, my family and friends and, more broadly, that of my fellow Aussies.
