You are here
Sha bop sha bop
And so am I
Sha bop sha bop

Maybe millions of people go by
But they all disappear from view
And I only have eyes for you
The Flamingos



I was standing today in the dark toolshed. The
sun was shining outside and through the crack at
the top of the door there came a sunbeam. From
where I stood that beam of light, with the specks
of dust floating in it, was the most striking thing in
the place. Everything else was almost pitch-black.
I was seeing the beam, not seeing things by it.
Then I moved, so that the beam fell on my eyes.
Instantly the whole previous picture vanished. – C.L.Lewis

It is a warm breezy Sunday morning, I thought the wind was rustling through the trees, but no, it is the monkeys, who think I can’t hear, they don’t know I have eyes and ears like them, or so I think. I know they waiting for a moment to slip in through the front door and steal the fruit, but my eyes are watching them.

Their Eyes Were (are) Watching God is a 1937 novel by American writer Zora Neale Hurston. It is considered a classic of the Harlem Renaissance of the 1920s, and it is likely Hurston’s best known work. The novel explores main character Janie Crawford’s “ripening from a vibrant, but voiceless, teenage girl into a woman with her finger on the trigger of her own destiny”.



For us in the outside world Sundays could be easy and relaxing but not for our super stars in LOCKDOWN. Trying to make the best of these mornings, every Sunday anxiety roams the inner chambers of everyone up for eviction, and today is no different, the air feels thick as dread looms.

Wishing each one the best…..
