Read After Burnout

So, yesterday the sun came out. It was the warmest day of the year so far, but that didn’t take much doing. This winter had been cold and damp. The skies had never made any serious attempt to turn blue, preferring their uniform grey. Because of the ironic upturn in the weather, I did my morning online class which then allowed me a healthy stretch of lunch during which time I took the opportunity to celebrate my new viral freedom to go out on the bike. This thing is starting to become the habit that I wish it to be.

I’ve grown less resistant to inclement weather and never truly brave excursions on the bike when it is raining, windy, or very cold. Living in England means that my trips out are restricted to spring and summer with a few in autumn. And of late, I have become quite partial…

They say that China is free of any new infections. Italy has become the epicentre. As it now stands, Italy’s deaths have now exceeded China’s. Spain is pushing on and catching up, whilst it remains to be seen how quickly the UK can lose control. Everything is about politics. There are sound-bites galore and what... Continue Reading →

I hate maths. Yes, I said and almost instantly regretted it. Our middle daughter seems to... Continue Reading →

On waking, I was presented with the age-old custom of a mug of tea. My wife was moving from the bedroom to the bathroom picking up various pieces of clothing as she dressed herself for work. Last night the government announced that schools and colleges would close as of the end of the week, apart... Continue Reading →

So, I am awake. I figure that that is preferable to sleep. I am making the most of these morning hours as sleep on troubles me with visions of what might be. Other people will be recording this and other people will probably have outlets that will pay for their thoughts. My writing has move... Continue Reading →

My mornings begin in roughly the same way. I wake. I climb from bed. I descend the stairs and I boil a kettle. God forbid if this virus interfered with that.

If you are reading this you have survived IT so far. The IT is the thing that can’t be named. Think Macbeth, but only think it. You see, once it has taken to the air and spread its wings…Well, I think you get the message.

I am writing this as a response to IT. I have been waiting for IT for much of my life, certainly the part that entertained the written word. I think that a lot of mankind has been secretly waiting for the day when things are taken out of our hands and given over to some power that is so removed from our understanding, and rationalisation, that it is simply alien or IT, a thing beyond explanation.

IT is the thing that makes all our decisions for us. The seiges that it lays upon all our lives cannot be ignored. IT is IT, that moment when…
