“Experience life in all possible ways --
good-bad, bitter-sweet, dark-light,
summer-winter. Experience all the dualities.
Don't be afraid of experience, because
the more experience you have, the more
mature you become.”
“Silence is so freaking loud”
― Sarah Dessen, Just Listen
I was (in case you're interested) awake at 4.24 am.
Actually, it was really 3.24 am, given the clocks have gone forward an hour for the start of British Summer Time.
It doesn't matter: I had an early night, almost knowing that that was the time I'd wake and get up.
I've caught up with a few things online — I've not read the news or spent time on Twitter save for a very brief scan — and with coffee poured, I feel ready to write my daily LJ post.
So, here we are, in the midst of a pandemic that shows no sign of abating. Not that I'm spending much time listening to the news but everything I hear from across the globe makes me think we've a long way to go before we're not just on top of the Covid19 pandemic, but we're back to anything that can be described as normal.
There's so much I could say but, actually, I don't feel inclined today to add to the outpouring of material. I know it's helpful to keep abreast of the news where you are, particularly when it concerns your loved ones, those on the front line of this killer virus and (most likely) keeping your head above water, but right now, I'm a bit overwhelmed by the whole thing and don't want to set myself further on edge.
Perhaps tomorrow I might add my two penneth worth.
Until then I wanted to share with you the wise and tender of words of John Butler — see the video below.( Collapse )
