Why it’s important that we never return to ‘normal’

Cards on the table. I’m not a brilliant person. Unlike so many of the writers here, I only have a BA. I’m not the CEO of some start-up, or a consultant or teacher or whatever. My career has been nothing if not unremarkable. I was a junior Civil Servant, recently retired due to ill-health. Mental health, that is. I am a Bear of Very Little Brain, who has spent much of his 61 years watching, listening and reading, then thinking (in my own simple, direct way) about what I have seen, heard and read.
