On the lockdown platform awaiting the freedom train / reflections from the bunker.

You know, I think we are almost done here. The flood is almost over. The land is dry’ish. The dove has returned with the surgical mask carelessly hanging loosely from its neck. The gates of the ark will soon be opened. The surviving species allowed out in pairs for a breather. Maybe some shopping even. …

Hippy dad, Upside Down dad, the new normal, and what has bad ass Al Capone to do with any of this anyway / Reflections from the bunker.

Life in lockdown clearly has its phases. The infamous “Storm the toilet paper …

What followed in the aftermath of the Black Death is not at all what you might have expected / reflections from the Covid-19 bunker.

Social distancing on social media as an act of kindness / reflections from the bunker.

I sometimes think that if we wanna know how healthy we are as a society in the age of Covid-19, we only need to log into Facebook and scroll down our feed. Like a thermometer to the temperature of our collective state of mind, it tells us exactly where we stand. And scrolling down lately, …

The global infodemic of Covid-19 / reflections from the bunker.

The Covid-19 recession is the first stock market crash in history that was caused by a pandemic. From the Tulip mania bubble in 1637 and all the way to the Financial Crisis of 2007-08, all panics to date were entirely man-made. Not this one though. This time it's different (?). The current pandemic has brought …

Did I just recover from Covid-19 ? I guess I’ll never know / reflections from the bunker.

On Wednesday 25th March I will be completing 2 weeks of a self isolation period. I can’t be sure of what I had, and it's highly likely that I’ll never find out either because no tests are being carried in the UK for suspected cases of Covid-19 unless the situation gets bad enough to require …
