L3 (Day 56): Inside

There was no need to exceed the boundaries of my home today. Mend and make do with what food I found.

There is a whole world out there, I know, but most of it is closed and I had plenty of work here.

To bed at 01:00 GMT. I hear birds singing on the hillside, city lights confusing their rhythms.

L3 (Day 54): In The Cold

The shift from yesterday’s promising warmth of sunshine to this fog threatening existence was brutal. No wind as such, but bitter cold, bitter.

The numbering of days in this lockdown is moving on so fast. Best not to look back to what has been left behind, or left undone, but to look ahead, to plot a course. Heaven’s light our guide.

On Ballet / Football

With grace, strength, agility

running, leaping, stretching

a staged performance

coached to perform

Our instrument is our body

The ball, decisions

freedom to play

without fear

~

n.b. Quoting Carlos Acosta, Birmingham Royal Ballet and Tony Cliss, The Posh and The Alex. Football is unscripted drama, an art in itself.
