RDP Sunday: Clever


Is it clever to be outside, enjoying the sun and breathing in the fresh air? Perhaps the air is not so fresh, but it smells good.  I am more than the 2 meters distance from my next door neighbour who is busy watering the garden. Even Mr. Swiss is indoors and so life goes on. I just saw that the neighbours little boy, aged 11 months, is taking his first steps alone in the garden. My weekend days of isolation are quite satisfying. I have almost forgotten how it used to be when it was thought of being good to mix with other humans. I wonder if when the great plague of London arrived in 1665 whether there would have been less deaths if people had then kept their distance from each other. Perhaps the whole thing never had to happen, although I think the rats played a big part in that episode of the history books. Who needs rats, today we can do it all by ourselves.

RDP Sunday: Clever

Good Morning


It is sunrise again, so now we are all awake and ready to go. Actually Is had one of those uncomfortable nights. Although I slept I had all sorts of vivid dreams. Since this coronavirus appeared I have a feeling that I am being followed. As long as I am not coughing or have fever I am reassured but always on the lookout. The latest statistics on my Swiss site show sinking amounts of the virus, but it is still there and we are still being careful. Although we had wonderful Spring weather yesterday I read that people were still remaining mainly at home and not making mass excursions to enjoy the weather in Switzerland. On the contrary I saw reports from London that the ignorant masses were out on the streets again bathing in the sun. Some people never learn. Since it all begun a month ago, I have not been into town and have no idea how it looks. My only excursion is to the store for food and I keep that to a minimum.


The birds are still looking for food in the morning, and have now changed their place nearer to my window. I have no more seeds to scatter but they always managed to find something somewhere. There is still a remainder on the bird house and when that is gone they will have to fed for theirselves, although there is plenty in the fields and meadows if they care to look.


And there is still plenty of water. It has not rained for a couple of weeks and I think I will have to spray the garden to give it enough moisture. And that is all I have to say at the moment. We are still in lock down, but it does not bother me so much. I think I realise how locked down I am in normal times without the virus. Take care everyone
