Stardate God Knows What…

Posted in Uncategorized at 11:29 am by Aleksan

Stardate God Knows what. Staying at home with no fixed schedules makes me feel tired, sleep more and lose focus – I have a long list of interesting things to do, read and get up to – but unless prodded I find myself procrastinating – and leaving things that I would normally instantly do to clear my metaphorical inbox.

Food and the next meal have become more important than ever. No day time TV so far, and I hope it does not come to that. Exercise is important and I make sure I do a short You Yube work out every other day, and go for a ride when that is possible for Sarah, and the weather is conducive. I expect this lazy phase will not last long, and I do rather enjoy it…

Nature has an idea….

Posted in Uncategorized at 9:32 am by Aleksan

Who’d have thought that World War Three would be against a common invisible enemy?
Who’d have thought that this war would halt movement between people, decrease pollution and freshen seas, rivers and the skies?
Who’d have thought that the next great world war would be so peaceful, so silent, so kind to the earth?
Who’d have thought that a war would bring nations together instead of dividing them?
Nature thought this thought….

Social Distancing Garden Visiting

Posted in Uncategorized at 9:07 am by Aleksan

Stardate 20200321
I find myself sitting next to my companionable Sammy on the sofa, both content after breakfast. The Sun shines, the east wind blows – but no signs or sounds of human life, no vapour trails in the sky. This is the first day of a new life – a life dictated by being two metres away from other humans, no travelling, no pubs, nowhere to go for coffee and croissants. Being retired, Penny and I have to some extent already been living this kind of life – Penny in the garden, me studying or taking Sammy out.

I cannot imagine how difficult this must be for those with no garden and living with young children with no school to go to. We love to share our garden and hope to continue to do so in one form or another. Maybe people could visit, bring their own flask of tea, and enjoy the garden as the weather improves, keeping the social distancing going of course. It might also be possible to walk up to the river if people don’t mind close proximity to cattle and horses. We are still thinking this out – would anyone be interested in this idea of garden visiting?

The Lesson

Posted in Uncategorized at 8:59 am by Aleksan

Going with the flowing
Slowing with the knowing
An invisible virus stops the World
Cleans the rivers, freshens the skies
While we can do nothing
But accept the overriding power of Nature
To teach brothers and sisters divided
That we are one.

Resolution….time to turn off the media, and listen to that inner voice…

Posted in Uncategorized at 8:51 am by Aleksan

Resolution: It is too easy to listen to, or watch, the tragi-comic drama all around me – so I am making Appointments with myself to study, read, exercise and practice Druidry and move further along that serpentine path, which has no end, no beginning but ever present essence of many connections, human, natural and otherworldly – following my own destiny, not that of the tricksters…

Turning away from the seduction of Media

Posted in Uncategorized at 4:25 pm by Aleksan

I am reducing news and comment input, devices often on silent, – increasing my time off message – so don’t expect quick responses!

It is too easy to listen to, or watch, the tragi-comic drama of life and death all around me – so I am making Appointments with myself to study, read, exercise and practice Druidry and move further along that serpentine path, which has no end, no beginning but ever present essence of many connections, human, natural and otherworldly – following my own destiny, not that of the tricksters…

Benign side effects…Covid 19

Side effects: The canals in Venice are running clear, no polluting vapour trails in the sky, fresh air in large cities, no abuse of the oceans by Cruise ships….

Thanks for the kind offers of help x

Posted in Uncategorized at 3:21 pm by Aleksan

Thanks those who have offered to help Penny and me. We are OK at present – we are in a bubble with Sarah Johns who does our shopping, picks up prescriptions etc. She may also be cutting my hair and grooming Sam…she has taken over security and disinfects everything that comes near the house! We have the horses, a lovely garden and the meadpws – luckier than most – if Sarah was to fall we might need help, but meanwhile let us hope the Gods protect us and we are spared x
