Mum & Magpie ii

Croydon, March 2020

From my lockdown diary. Over the past year, the garden has been the only consistent source of sun and fresh air for my mum and I. It largely became a space associated with relief and calm during the first lockdown, and has carried on that way.

My time spent outside in the garden - having breakfast, lunch,  tea, soaking up the sun in it, photographing it - made me truly "see" this space, one I thought was so familiar and well-worn, where instead I’ve found moments of unfamiliarity and moments of magic.

This was one of those surreal moments; this curious creature somehow ended up flying into our house one gorgeous blue-sky day and got stuck in our living room. My mum rescued the bird and set it free again. It was an incredibly timely real-life metaphor - a moment of struggle and panic, but with some help and kindness, the magpie was able to fly away to freedom again.
