I know, I know, I have written several posts on this topic- as has just about everyone in the world by now. But I have a few remarks about my life in this moment that I would like to share.
People are beginning to gather in crowds again I have noticed here in Queensland, which is a pity as I was hoping that people would stick with the obviously successful – if mildly irritating – social distancing rules. So today as I was heading into Samford to obtain some medicine (phoned before setting off, medicine will be brought to my car with cash machine, so I have no need to go into chemist) I came across a gang of overweight motorcyclists roaring down the road on their noisy damn motorbikes. Currently only three people (not of a family) are allowed to gather, but there were a least 20 of these guys – pity really. Ah well.
Obviously this photo is not of the group I saw, I was driving after all.
Also I have now come across larger groups of cyclists as well, so soon it will be back as it was before the plague – every weekend driving will become tricky as one confronts huge groups of Lycra clad people on their bikes blocking most of the road.. Another case of Oh Well……….
Other than these couple of things, I am hugely enjoying being in isolation. For me it is simply a pleasure, but then, I live on 5 acres of beautiful country, so I can wander around at will and don’t live in a two room flat on the tenth story of an inner city tower-block. For those people it must be horrible, and they have all my sympathy.
