So I had to go into town today for an appointment.
It feels like the first day of spring.
Here in Wales the sun is shining.
It’s no coat needed kind of day.
I miss seeing people smile.
Faces behind masks.
Trying to read someone’s eyes .
Everyone two metres away.
It’s necessary I know.
I wonder about children born at the begining of lockdown.
Their perspective on the big world around them.As they begin to sit up in their prams.
No one bending over to smile and say hi.
To push a silver coin into chubby baby fists for good luck.
For the children and the sick more than anyone I pray this pandemic to end.
I’ve done what I had to in town.
Before leaving I wondered down to o the beach
First time in a year.
How I’ve missed it.
More than I knew.
The soft lapping of the sea on the sand.
The sun shining mine and my little dog Mavis foot prints in the sand.
The sky is so blue fresh crisp air.A feeling a have not felt for quite some time
Hope….I smile to myself it’s going to be okay.
This will end.
I hope we learn from this.
Learn never to take simple everyday things for granted .
Like seeing a stranger’s face smile.
Passing the time of day with others when we are out for a walk
Freedom of movement .
A simple walk on the beach.❤️
