AT A GLANCE by Ryan O'Neill

Over this period of lockdown I have become aware of simple routines that have emerged. I aim to be in bed at the same time every night and wake up at the same time each day. I start the day with a hot water and lemon. I spend a few minutes looking out the window, notice the weather or any rare glimpses of life on the street. Around this time I receive ‘your day at a glance’ from an astrology app.

In this current environment these statements, however vague have consoled, energised, sympathised with and baffled me. Some have been a cosmic connection and predicted the day ahead, other have been an ideal to live by and a reminder of humorous morals, some have left me in state of melancholy and others remind me to delete the app. However ridiculous I have become very fond of this morning ritual and how a simple sentence can set me up for the day ahead.
