The Lockdown – Sharing a moment


Brian May: The Lock Down [posted 24 March 2020)

I’m not an immunologist – but anyone with even a scant understanding of logic and statistics has been feeling angry and anxious this last 3 weeks.  These are my thoughts – I hope they are helpful.  

My heart reaches out to those already directly suffering from the effects of the CoronaVirus.

 Our Spanish friends are now in the heat of the battle, as we in Britain will soon be, barring a miracle.  God bless ya – be strong and be careful.  Vaya con Dios.

Folks everywhere – our miracle will come – but we need to help it happen.  We need to buy time – and the closer we get to a Nation where every household is isolated from every other – the more time we will buy.  Remember not to expect things to change immediately – turning this thing around is like trying to make an ocean liner change its course – you have turn the rudder and then wait until it slowly responds.  But we can do this.  

Be safe – and let’s be grateful we have a chance here.  And let’s still try to enjoy each day we’re given.

KEEP CALM AND CREATE !!! #dontstopusnow

Cheers – Bri

Thank you Ronnie [_seventhmoon_]—- What a lovely visualisation – wish I looked half as good as this !! What a great talent you have. And I’m honoured. As I write, I am in exactly this position ! I was thinking, for tomorrow’s MicroConcert, of …. KEEP YOURSELF ALIVE ?!! Does that ring any bells folks ?

Grateful for my roof and my feathered friends. And for another sunset.

And for the music of the Drifters. “Up On The Roof” was written by Gerry Goffin and Carole King in 1962, and became a big hit for the Drifters ‘on both sides of the Atlantic’, as they used to say. Hang in out there, folks !!!
