One of my favourite ‘modern’ composers is the great Leonard Bernstein (1918- 1990). He once said: “To achieve great things, two things are needed; a plan, and not quite enough time.” This is what I will take from the year 2020 – the concept of now having enough time! With the onset of the global COVID-19 pandemic, ‘time’ became an irrelevant commodity. For weeks and months parts of the world were in ‘lockdown’ and suddenly the convention of ‘I do not have enough time’ meant nothing. Not only did COVID-19 bring about a world of mask-wearing citizens but also provided one with more than enough time – some quality time to spend with loved ones and reflect on how precious life is!
