The pandemic bags

At the beginning of 2020 I was searching for the perfect bag: light, comfortable and eager to take in all my stuff.
I filled my newest purchase to the brim and took it for a test drive.

I felt completely prepared for the new year.
But then the pandemic started and from March till May all my bags where in lockdown, waiting on a hanger.
When summer arrived, I realised that I’ll be spending this year around the neighbourhood so I ordered a mini-bag and comfortable snickers.
For that whole year all my needs fit in a nine inch bag carrying a face mask and thoughts about my loved ones. And maybe sometimes we don't need more than that.
My old bag waited quietly in the closet, dreaming of all the hugs and travels we had to put on hold, praying everything will be alright soon.
