I finished a song a day or so ago. I slightly messed up the final transfer of the mix so I had to redo it. Its fairly conventional sounding tune for a change. Straightforward one might say in many ways. As I type this we have gone from a heatwave to conditions more like the beginning of November in the space of a week or so. So I am sulking as I cant go out to play mostly due to the dread C19 virus messing things up bigtime. I dont expect much sympathy as you lot can’t really keep calm and carry on either can you?
So here is the song first in case you dont want to read all the whinging first.
I am glad we got that bit over first. So back to the whinging then. Some people are relentlessly upbeat all the time.How do they do it and what are they on? The walls continue to close in on me I am afraid. I have been trying to open the doors but the wind is blowing them firmly shut again. The damp is making my bones complain again.
I cannot say I have ever felt as isolated and out of touch at anytime in my life so far as I have during the weeks since March 23rd this year when lockdown restrictions were formally introduced in the United Kingdom. Everything is strange and surreal. Even the most mundane activities as we go to the shop masked like cowboys with bandanas as we buy a hand of bananas. The novelty has worn off now though.
Will we ever get back to normal? I am not convinced its going to happen anytime soon. One year, two years, longer perhaps. It’s hard to imagine really. So far we have had restrictions for 159 days. And we are still here.
if only I still had something to say.
“Rivers know this: there is no hurry. We shall get there some day.”
“He that can have patience can have what he will.”
“Why is patience so important?”
“Because it makes us pay attention.”
