I know, God, that mere mortals can't run their own lives, That men and women don't have what it takes to take charge of life. So correct us, God, as you see best.

Jeremiah 10:23-24

Antoine,

Daylight sets in middle America,
Darkness idles for a moment,
Before coming to rest over my house.

Silence falls like black,
Crickets and Frogs sing songs of love,
Bob Dylan's croons on the radio,
singing "I contain multitudes."

A single tear pauses then rolls,
As COVID claims another life,
Levels and ratings and statistics and junk,
Seen from outer space,
don't even cast a shadow.

I know this guy being put to the test,
put to the test, no silence or darkness, no quarter, no rest
just a man, like me, no more, nor one iota less,
where some see order, others see a mess,
me I see love, but if instead the Lord sees us a pest,
Please correct us, God, as you see best.

I have no response to your diatribe.

If you cannot see the differences between America and Nazi Germany, perhaps you might spend some time in a history book or in a time of prayerful contemplation.

Peace be with you.

Dear Kelly,

Thank you so much for your reply!

First off, yes I can explain the whole 'transcription' business. Basically, on the Between the Bars website, we have the option to transcribe, i.e. type out any blogs or letters that have been uploaded, I'm assuming for some kind of record or to make certain hand-written letters more legible and easy to read(?).

In that case, I might have to read the Game of Thrones books and get back to you! That's so funny, my friend is exactly the same in that she loves all things fantasy: vampires, werewolves, you name it! And, of course, these books can provide a sense of escapism that is more profound than non-fiction, or more mundane plots perhaps.

How bizarre that you say you're currently reading about Anne Boleyn whilst I've just today been reading John Guy's 'Elizabeth: The Forgotten Years', which also deals with Henry VIII a lot! It's a very interesting time period I think, partly because of the bloodshed and sheer gruesomeness of it all! That's so impressive! I'm not sure I could very easily name every monarch from William the Conqueror to our current Queen!

I'm pleased to hear that you've transferred units, and hope that things might become a little easier now, but I'd love to know how you're holding up under these new conditions.

With regards to COVID, I think that it will become a relatively regular epidemic, but hopefully it won't necessarily evolve into the pandemic that we are currently experiencing! Here in England, after seeing a reduction in cases, the Prime Minister eased restrictions a little, but it almost looks as though cases are now going to rise again as certain areas in the country have been put back into lockdown! I know that my university are already planning on running the first semester almost entirely online, so I wouldn't be surprised if work, entertainment industries, schools and universities etc. are completely restructured/altered for a while to come!

Thank you again for your reply Kelly, and I hope to hear from you soon!

All the best wishes,

Mimi
