I’ve been missing for a while – it is the dreaded virus.
COVID-19 lock down in Melbourne and my creativity is locked down with it.
I settle into my chair and I have nothing to write. I wander around the house. I make a cup of tea. I check my emails again and again. I find something on YouTube to listen to. I go for my daily walk. I sit at my computer again. It’s no good there is nothing there. My creativity has died.
Are you the same?
What’s been your ‘go-to-thing’ to lift you spirits during these COVID days of lockdown and the pandemic?
Melbourne, so the news tells us, has the hardest lockdown than anywhere else in the world. It has certainly gone on longer than anywhere else in the world.
For you reading this somewhere else in the world and watching your number of cases rise as winter approaches do you envy Melbourne? Our cases have got down to single figures. All this sacrifice we have made has worked.
Bless Premier Daniel Andrews who’s in charge of this long and frustrating period of our lives. We had only two new cases of the virus yesterday.
Sunday is when he will release his foot from the break peddle and let some light shine in. As spring moves into summer we will be out and about boosting the economy. I am hoping that Dan’s never giving up and staying staunch against some bitter and very nasty criticism will go down as a model for the way to handle and squash the virus for any future pandemic. I hope he has made this a COVID free city
Great moments during lockdown
Empty Supermarket car parks
Rushing out the door when the sun shines.
Meeting a friend in the park – not so good for cafes where once we met up.
Walking – the joy of our own neighbourhood where we are confined.
Spring is busting out all over and our neighbourhood gardens are ‘lifters of our spirits’ as we watch them wake up from winter.
These wonderful orange roses have a wonderful sent – quite intoxicating. I wish I knew its name.
