A feeling of serenity….possibly?

Back on the 28th March I posted ‘A Lone Marker Post – a metaphor perhaps’. This was just five days after Lockdown began in the UK on the 23rd of March. Yesterday I returned to this beach for the first time in well over 3 months and subsequently made the above image.

It was a beautiful, still and quiet morning. The water was flat calm and as I walked along the shoreline I too felt a sense of peace, of stillness, and this image I think portrays what I was experiencing at the time.

Coronavirus coupled with Lockdown have had a profound affect on the lives of many people, and whilst we are not out of the woods yet, restrictions are being slowly lifted and there are the beginnings of life returning to something a little more normal. Not how it was, but better than it has been for quite a while.

Personally I don’t feel as anxious as I did back in March and April. I hope this isn’t complacency creeping up on me. If it is I need to address it quickly as the risks associated with this dreadful disease are still out there.

In the meantime I count my blessings that I can return to these rather special locations and enjoy their peaceful and serene nature.

    A nice image of stillness, barely a ripple on the water, “untroubled waters,” and a simple, pleasing sailboat, definitely looks like a good medicinal dose of calmness.

    A beautiful shot and as you say, very calming. Good to hear you are able to get around some more. I think we all have to get used to a new normal and hopefully we’ll all find a balance of care and interaction with the people and world around us.

    (we are back in lockdown in Melbourne, Australia, with a surprising number of new cases).
