On Monday 30 March 2020, Premier Daniel Andrews announced that as of 11:59pm that evening, all Victorians must stay at home, able to leave only for four essential reasons: for food and supplies, medical care, exercise, and work or education. Since that time, more than 10 weeks have passed, and from June 1, the isolation restrictions eased a little. But what of this time

-time? Have we learnt anything as a society, or as individuals? What can we make out of this time
, which is still unfolding as we continue to find our feet individually, as families and as communities of people?
