It is two and a half weeks since I last featured an Italian stamp.  Since then the corona virus has spread a lot more on our globe – and in Italy, it is clear that the peak has passed.  It is tough to think about the vast numbers of families who have lost their loved ones, but Italy is showing the rest of the world that people are still living with positive and supportive minds.

色違いの切手を載せたのが2週間半前ですが、あっと言うまにコロナ禍は世界を覆いつくす勢いで、イギリスも2週間前から移動制限が始まりました。天気の良い週末は人出が多すぎる公園が閉鎖されたりと、厳戒令のただ中ですが、イタリアが「峠を超えた」ニュースは希望をあたえてくれます。ポジティブに、出来ることをやりながら嵐が過ぎるのを待つしかなさそうです、、。
