In isolation between a ‘Rock and a Hot Place’

In isolation between aRock and a Hot Place– we arrived in the UK just over a month ago, for a short break from our assignments in The Gambia, West Africa. We had intended to head to the small island of Malta, which we have called our other home for the last five years. After this, we had planned to return to West Africa to continue our projects. However, the days following our return to the UK Malta closed its airport, soon followed by The Gambia.

So, we find ourselves grounded, literally, here in the UK at my mother’s house – waiting for the skies to open again. In the meantime, I watch her English country garden slowly break bud and bloom, and Helen as the light finds her in our roost above the barn. On our daily exercise routes, we take in what’s around us. During all of this, we are wildly conscious of the struggle around us… the fight for life. Jason Florio
