COVID – BLUES
That state of not feeling quite right, but not being able to put your finger on the reason why. Not physically ill, not suffering any actual symptoms of anything that can be seen or treated in the traditional sense. Just feeling low – not depressed, not even anxious – just uncertain about the future. Feeling that the rug has been pulled out from under our feet. Whether or not the rug was actually blue!
Needing a dose of something incredibly vivid to shock the system into feeling itself again, to break out from the bell jar and feel alive again. Be more vivid, always a good stage direction.
Those delicious shades of blue connect us to the sky – with no vapour trails – we all saw the sky this summer and marvelled at its clear expanse, feeling the benefit of those calming shades over our heads.
