My last thread here was about Coronavirus on its way to the USA given we have a foretaste in Europe. https://worldcommunity.us/coronavirus-reasons-to-be-fearful/
That was posted only 2 weeks ago and from the replies most were relaxed about this ‘flu’ but no so now.
This post wants to get away from the political/medical aspect and wants to look at the human aspect we are all experiencing, our lives and how they are now and any change in how we now view the world.
I give here my thoughts in a cabin fever kind of way!
All most silent here. Even finding people walking past to the nearby park is sporadic and even when I went out the gate to have a little run and a cop car pulled up to ask me where I was going. Four week now in a jail and seems like months. I listen to too much radio and blogs and hear of those chocking to death in hospital without any friend or family near by. Then can not even touch your coffin and no church services – or limited to a handful. Listening to the radio just yesterday and eating my meal I was very stuck by something. The window was open and I could hear some bird song but it stopped as an ambulance passed by. That probably happens often but more pronounced now by the silence but more ominous given all the news we get. The BBC radio programme PM (an hour long very sober news slot) was just finishing and unusually for it , it ended with a request from a listener to play a song/tune from 1924.
It was a scratchy ( 1924- naturally) Cello piece of a lady who played from her garden and somehow it attracted a nightingale to sing along. This was the first BBC outside broadcast as someone insisted they broadcast it live on then primate radio. It was broadcast for many years since to mark the start of Spring.
So in this brief interlude I listen to this -and going into the garden and seeing the daffodils in the lovely sunshine …. I just had to cry for those suffering who will never see the Spring again or any birdsong:
( this version was from 1942 but not dissimilar from the 1924.. which I will try source)
Views of how you are and the affect on your life are welcome, rather than political statements.
