Penny for your thoughts…

Updated: Sep 28, 2022

At a time when most of us are trying to reconcile the events of the last few days, social media can seem like a very noisy place.

The grief, shock and trepidation for what’s to come are palpable, and on top of that, there’s something else…

Something which is somewhat harder to put a finger on, than the hard-hitting permanence of this point in history.

A feeling of pensiveness, perhaps?

Its been suggested, that this introspective-offshoot to the Queens passing, has caused more people than thought they would have been affected, to become entangled in the visceral aftermath of this life-altering event.

Individual past losses, in turn, have been brought into sharper focus, with previous sorrows and sadnesses becoming unearthed and experienced anew in the process.

Dedicating the time to collecting and compartmentalising these thoughts, feels at the moment, as appropriate a response as any, and not just because it’s for want of a better option.

As well, it’s because those ‘pennies’ that mount up in the thought-milling process, are now quite possibly as poignant as the truths they carry, and just as worthy as collecting….for the posterity of the now-bygone Elizabethan era!
