|Not Dress up Friday, |
just Tuesday evening
I think few of us have not been considering how things have changed for us over the last year, one question I heard asked on the radio this morning was "who have you missed over lock down?" I suppose my first thought was of course my daughter, my friends, my bands and Orchestra ~ but I think that maybe on reflection the person I have missed most might be me! I know I've been in my own company pretty much all of the time so how could I miss me?
Well, what is it that makes me me? So much of this is similar to what I was saying the other day about missing performing, the things that make me me, Pride, Concerts, meeting with my friends, making music, presenting, even taking part in communal worship ~ all this has gone by the board, I am left with just the one crucial part of my make up, my gardening. This is more than a job, it is more than a hobby, it is part of who I am. The lock down has made me realise just how important it is to me, and I am now determined to get a plot of my own to cultivate. It is crucial to who I am, but not the whole!
I have just heard that another friend of mine has been called in to have her vaccine, on reflection although there is a lot that's wrong with the World, the Virus, division, a lot of bad people doing bad things, but maybe we do have some thing to look forward to, if these vaccines can reduce our fear, and Joe Bidden can help bring in a kinder more inclusive politics around the World, then yes, definitely we have something to look forward to.
