Strange Times

I have to admit I have purposely been avoiding mentioning the current situation that we are facing in the UK at present. There are already so many voices on this subject and in truth I don’t feel qualified enough to give any real opinions on the matter.

These are strange and uncertain times that we are living through, schools have been shut, people are panic buying (without the real need to) and if you speak to anyone it is in the forefront of their minds.

Each passing day there is an unease as to what measures will be brought in next. How long will the isolating have to go on for? Will we be in full lock down soon?

I am at present following the current Government advice and isolating. I am trying to stay positive, the old adage of trying to make the best of a bad situation. Although I have to admit I am daunted by the thought of having to stay home.

I have spoken in the past about how soothing nature is for me and my recovery, but this isn’t just about me. Its about protecting those who are most vulnerable.

Plus the more that people take heed to the advice and do their part then hopefully the shorter this will continue for.

There are rays of hope throughout this whole scenario, I have seen Facebook groups set up with the aim to deliver supplies and ensure that those in need aren’t left without, many creators on the web have set up live shows to keep people entertained and keep spirits high. The blitz spirit lives on, even if we are not physically able to come together.

I look forward to when some sort of normality is resumed, I will definitely appreciate getting out and about with the camera a lot more.

My hopes throughout isolation is to try to be creative in other ways; practice drawing, learn new editing skills, read more etc.. I am looking at this as a time to reset not as wasted time (trying to negate the negativity I could feel)

I wish I had some pictures to add to this post but as I mentioned in my last post my laptop is currently out of action (I will admit, I spilled coffee over it and at present it is dead). I am not sure when this will be remedied but I will continue to write each week. I hope you still enjoy what I create and I wish you all a good week.
