What happened to Keketso Semoko at the beginning of 2020, is something that united the whole world. While reading her When The Ego Dissolved – Lockdown Diary we identify with many passages she recounts with great emotion.
That unforgettable Time of History made us feel humanity closer, in which many certainties have become confused and others well clarified. It’s true that we have rediscovered the simplicity of things, we have reclaimed our time, a life marked by care for ourselves, a way of organizing our own solitude, but also improve the quality of being in company, as well as finding space to fill in moment after moment with our loved ones, near and so far.
