The idea of being outside:

warm day, blue skies,

seems very attractive.

The reality of being outside

which includes gale-force winds

sucks the fun out of the idea.

It feels like a kind of


for ‘where we are’

with the pandemic.

Trying to do the right thing

but there is a big gap

between idea and reality.



But allowing myself

to stay


doesn’t help me.

So I look out, up and around –

and that helps.
