May 2022

Sometimes we need to take some time to reflect, as the authors in this new May issue do. In the various contributions, they provide us with an insight into their own journey. These contributions from a wide variety of disciplines seem to enter into an unexpected but interesting dialogue. We would also like to thank you, the reader, 'for your continuous efforts'; and above all, let us remind one another to not take each other for granted.
