It has been a difficult year for all of us. While some struggled and continue to struggle to feed themselves, others went crazy alone in their homes. Physical encounters have been framed in lines not to be crossed. One scene in „The Shawshank Redemption“ runs as follows: „You need it [the music] so you don’t forget […] that there are places in the world that aren’t made out of stone. That there’s something inside that they can’t […] touch. That’s yours. […] Hope.“ However, the dialogue continues: „I will tell you something my friend. Hope is a dangerous thing. Hope can drive a [hu]man insane. […] You better get used to this idea.“
