So the second week in 201 and we are back in a national lockdown as predicted to be fair as there could be no other outcome realistically. So its introspection central here again. Today I have not ben outside the flat, but I did get out into the countryside yesterday which lifted my spirits for the day. Today though was not so good. I have been working on a recording of a new song and it was a bit exhausting to get it done.Ii am not sure how well its worked to be honest. Due to personal circumstances I have not done so well as I hoped although I now have all the resources I ever imagined I would or could possibly need. Some how it seems I have arrived at the port of destination but the ship I hoped to meet there is not in the dock. Its cold and it’s winter but the sky’s been beautiful today at least with the distant tree line on the hills hinting of some new adventure in more normal times. But at present that’s not very likely. My fellow travelers are gone and I am here like a reluctant hobbit spirited back to the shire after a grand adventure but finding nothing is the same anymore. And of course the pubs are still shut.
There is a lot of anger about the present restrictions and many people are beginning to feel that that nothing will make any difference. The first vaccinations will not be completed until March or possibly April. So restrictions could well be quite severe for a while. How ever it will make very little difference to me now personally now due to the events of the last couple of years which have left me out on a limb socially and in most other ways as well.
