What’s To Come—-

In place of my own musings this Monday I am reblogging some musings from an Italian writer predicting the future for us in the UK, Ireland and the USA, based on his experience of the past 3 weeks.

The acclaimed Italian novelist Francesca Melandri, who has been under lockdown in Rome for almost three weeks due to the Covid-19 outbreak, has written a letter to fellow Europeans “from your future”, laying out the range of emotions people are likely to go through over the coming weeks.

I am writing to you from Italy, which means I am writing from your future. We are now where you will be in a few days. The epidemic’s charts show us all entwined in a parallel dance.

We are but a few steps ahead of you in the path of time, just like Wuhan was a few weeks ahead of us. We watch you as you behave just as we did.

  1. Hi Clive. I usually post my ‘Monday’ pieces on Sunday and schedule them. Infortunately the reblog button doesn’t let you schedule – hence ‘Monday’ on a Sunday! Hope you are coping with this crisis and able to keep in touch with loved ones!


  2. Hello Frank. Today is my 19th day in home isolation and following all hygienic practices to avoid infection. Our mayor predicts that cases will peak this week in Los Angeles County.
    Stay safe and well in your concern of the world ❤
