Calm during the pandemic
I am sitting upstairs and looking out over the Sound of Sleat. Its low tide and the sea is like glass. Across the water one can just see the tiny community of Airor on Knoydart, one of the most remote areas of Scotland. It is hard to think this beautiful scene reflects a calm that is not felt anywhere in the whole country as we are all stand frozen in lockdown due to the Coronavirus pandemic. It is also hard to even imagine that the whole world stands still in the face of the threat from this tiny beastie when looking at the placid scene. I wonder if it knows how it has humbled human beings…
Lyn and I have isolated ourselves for almost a month now. It is so strange, even here in this quiet place. I spend some time on my photography ‘chasing the light’, as I call it and Lyn is keeping herself busy making stuff for our grandchild who is due to arrive in June. One way or another, this is going to be a year to remember.
We are busy with a difficult task concerning our bookings for 2020. As things have shut down and the future situation is unclear we are doing a rolling cancellation of bookings as things unfold.
