Up on my roof, with my pals. It’s been a while.
Brian May: Up on my roof – 26 Feb 2021
I think we’re all feeling thankful for the blue sky and sunshine. Yes, I did miss most of it, because I insanely worked through the night until 7am. It seems my spirit is more or less permanently on LA time – but my body is anchored in the UK.
Hope you’re all bearing up out there. I think the prolonged restrictions brought about by the mis-management of our response to this challenge to humanity are … now wearing us down. I don’t like subscribing to false optimism – because I don’t want to be disappointed. I’d rather accept and make lemonade out of lemons. But … well, dreaming is allowed ! Take care out there. The bombs are still falling.
