adapting

Our world can change in just a beat

Of butterfly wings that flutter on the other

Side of the world and send a shockwave

That ripples through the air, changing atoms,

Particles and our version of events.

But even though this change remains a constant

We somehow mange to find ways

To work through obstacles, growing gills

And fins for when the water rises.

We will always rise,

It’s all that we can do.

Change is always going to happen. I think that we have all learnt this over the past few months because of the way in which we have had to change our behaviours.

What’s amazing is the way in which we seem to adapt so brilliantly. It can sometimes take a bit of effort, and there can sometimes be a bit of resistance in the beginning, but generally, we are so good at it.

I’m currently sitting on the sofa watching the parade for the Queen’s birthday and it’s a perfect example of how we can adapt. This is an event that is full of tradition and when the virus hit I think that most people would have thought it impossible.

But we have all become so used to social distancing now that it is second nature to us. And the soldiers in the parade have also managed to adapt and do the parade with them all remaining two metres apart.

Our royal family have so many traditions and they are very strict in following them. So if they can move with these really challenging times it just goes to show how adaptable we all are.

Apparently the aliens are invading at the end of the summer so it is good to know that when they arrive we will all be able to follow their new regime when it comes. They fry anyone who disobeys so it’s good to know that new behaviour can feel normal to me after just a few weeks.

Stay safe and love each other whenever you can.

Much Love

    The world is not the most pleasant place. Eventually, your parents leave you and nobody is going to go out of their way to protect you unconditionally. You need to learn to stand up for yourself and what you believe and sometimes, pardon my language, kick some ass.

      I don’t think they were but they were the queen’s guards so they are trained to be really precise when marching. They were always two metres about without a shadow of a doubt.
