Almost a normal kind of day.

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.

But sad.

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.❤️

Go outside & look up at the universe

Don’t know about writers block..

More like writers WTF…

Ive had loads to write about but haven’t.

I’ve given my head a wobble and I’m back.

Wishing you all a fabulous and positive 2021.

What a rollercoaster 2020 was.

Covid 19 has shaken us all to the core.

No matter what we believe about the origin of this virus it has affected us all

Our own health, loosing loved ones, financially freedom of movement, working from home , loss of businesses and jobs.

Social distancing.

Mask wearing.

Limited numbers at weddings and funerals.

The list is endless.

Two years ago if it had been a news story there would have been mass panic.

We all have different opinions on how this global pandemic has been handled.

The truth of it is simple

Not one of us is wrong.

We have all viewed this world wide stage individually .

I’ve seen so much kindness

But also so much nastiness.

Maybe from fear who knows.

The only thing we now have control over is how we react .

We really do have to be the best us that we can.

That involves being kind to ourselves.

Go outside walk on the cold frozen earth.

Look up at the vastness of the universe

It is all part of you.

We are all part of each other.

Connected .

Know that you , we , us.

Are living in strange times that are a major part of history.

I really hope that we all take away something positive from this experience.

If you can’t think of something then make it your goal.

Something in years to come when you are telling a child the story of the worldwide pandemic

There will be a glow of hope you speak of a difference you made.

Now go outside and look up at the universe X
