"Stop, Look, Listen" Anglesey lane
Such silence! No vapour trails, no cars, no other walkers! Just the sound of a blackbird, a wren, a robin and the bleating of new lambs. It IS surreal, this human silence. I hear more nature now and I’m exploring the countryside more than in years, but the complete lack of human sounds is also strangely disturbing at present, for we know WHY.
A unseen, unpredictable killer disease is on the rampage and it can kill any of us at any time. This is the silence of fear; it’s like one of those post-apocalyptic road movies, where things seem visually normal, even beautiful, any yet there is a darkness in the unknown, in the waiting and in our solitude - a solitude I usually desperately need!
