#MySundaySnapshot - Daffodil Lament  10/52 (2020)

To say this week has been a rollercoaster is an understatement. I guess the idea of a rollercoaster would imply that life has been up, down, up, down but in reality, there haven’t really been many if any ups at all.

Everything seems so surreal at present, at least it does for the first five minutes after I wake, that is until reality smacks me hard in the face. You know those situations which you hope and assume will never happen to you or to your family? Well, it seems we’ve been dealt with three or four of these to deal with all at once and quite frankly it’s crap.

I’m well aware that these next few weeks aren’t going to be easy, though I’ve had a bit of a practice run as I had expected for this week to be the ‘biggy’. As it turned out things have been put on hold and whilst that’s fine for the time being – the waiting doesn’t really make things any easier.

2020 has so far brought nothing but upset and it’s barely even spring! There may be daffodils and snowdrops decorating the hedgerows, lighter nights on the way and sure signs of the season shifting but emotionally it’s one of the darkest winters I have ever known.

Bring on the springtime – bring on the sunshine and bring on the better times as I’m done with the dark and dreary disappointment which seems to have suffocated my smile.

“Through your eyes, I can see the disguise
Through your eyes, I can see the dismay
Has anyone seen lightning?
Has anyone, looked lovely? And the daffodils look lovely today
And the daffodils look lovely today
Look lovely today”

    Rachel, it seems troubles come in swarms sometimes. They just keep piling on. But your creativity and writing ability will surely help you to cope. Hope things turn around for you soon. I’m going to read your linky guidelines–I rarely take photos of anything but food!

      I hope so too – though I managed to empty a tub of gravy into my favourite handbag today so it’s not looking good !
