The Corona Diaries – Day 25

Life goes on much the same in this isolated world. We make contact over the phone and internet with friends and family. Our lives have fallen into a pattern.

Last night Boris Johnson was taken into intensive care and his mate Trump sent a planeload of pharmaceuticals over. We’ll see.

So now we have Dominic Raab looking like a rabbit in the headlights – but nothing changes. Not enough testing. Not enough ventilators and not enough protective gear.

Today I did a bit of painting. I did a third coat over the walls in Dylan’s room.

I then finished the fifth edit of my new novel – ‘Farm 703 -The Human Project’ and decided there was little more I can do for it. I had a look on the web for public domain pictures of bacteria that I can use for the cover and found a few. I will check to ensure they are free to use. It seems hard to ascertain.

So I will publish and be damned!

My eager readership will be waiting expectantly!! It is a very apt story. Humans are being farmed by bacteria. There is debate whether to terminate the human project as we are being far too destructive.

It is a beautiful day so I went for a long two hour walk. There wasn’t a soul around. The countryside was blooming; the houses were shut up. I felt like I was a character in some post-apocalyptic story – Stephen King’s ‘The Standing’. It was almost eerie.

It is so great to see nature at play. I do hope that after this is all over we will cherish it more. We have abused it so much.

I am now off to begin the process of publishing! Stay safe and wish me luck!

  1. Day 25 already Opher. My, how time flies when in lock-down! Only 60+ days to go, keep your chin up.

    Irrespective of Johnson’s absence (let him, or Cummings, or preferably both, be guinea-pigs for Trump’s ‘game-changing’ Hydroxychloroquine before administering it to the populous) the hydra-headed Tory government (temporarily deputized by an alarmed, geographically-challenged Raabit) will remain deceitful, evasive, inept, incompetent and complacent. No one believes a damn word they say anyway.

    Good luck publishing the new book.

    Nature is looking resplendent: at her shimmering best and flourishing without human interference. At night beneath a full Moon the eerie quiet intensifies.

    I’ll leave you this well-written read to fill any hollow moments left before close of your day…

    1. Cheers Dewin. How time flies. The year will be over before we know it!
      I like the idea of Cummings and Johnson being guinea pigs! Perhaps Trump and Bolsonaro can join them?
      Nature certainly is resplendent! AQ rebirth.
      That article looks good – I’ll give it more of a read when I get a minute.
      Cheers Dewin – Keep alive!!

    1. I’m looking for a nice colourful photo of bacillus bacteria with flagella that I can use for the cover of my latest Sci-fi novel. It’s hard to find a free photo.

I'd like to hear from you...
