It is common practice to yearn for what has gone before and is no more. We seem to be indulging in this much more since the pandemic and lockdown etc.
The blogosphere abounds with posts (mine included) yearning for the way things were before COVID-19. Although we have truly lost many things that we took for granted, the pandemic is not the first time that we have been hankering for the past.
It is human nature to take what we have for granted. The yin to this yang is naturally a longing for what is no more.
