It seems that many of us will remember spring 2020 as the spring without baseball … just swirling dead leaves in the dugouts … I am so happy to read here that my haiku stirred a few hearts. <3 Thank you for your comments, which I cherish.
Thank you, Alan! Let's hope that in 2021 the dugouts will be filled with baseball players and not dead leaves … and the stadiums and arenas, stands and bleachers, filled with spectators, everywhere, too …
I remember a fab Bristol (UK) nightclub called The Dug Out! :-)
The Dug Out Club in Bristol which closed down in 1986, is the inspiration for a new play at the Tobacco Factory. The nightclub in Park Row shaped the Bristol music scene in the 60s, 70s and 80s. The play is based on real events, such as the targeting of the city in 1974 by the IRA.
Now we have the invisible virus and no night clubs or pubs or cafes.
There may be stopgap vaccines but not a magical universal one for a while.
Perhaps we need to develop far more sophisticated holograms so we can be virtually with everyone else in the stadiums, but still pop to the kitchen to make a cup of tea, or snatch another brew from the fridge. :-)
My wife, Karen Hoy, attended Live Aid (Bob Geldof, U2, Queen etc…) but I can only bear to do 100,000 people events if I'm being paid myself, as I have been in the past. :-) I'm more of a 7 or 8 people haiku workshop person, currently via Zoom at the moment. :-)
