"Life always has its cycles of ups and downs" thought Cassie, peering into reams of Intrigue, not that she was 'Inspector Cluedo' unable to put her book down "whatever they threw out there, has come back" feeling flue-like, she turned the page "this transit twists, twilight shadows, nostalgia to oblivion, perhaps history was repeating itself?" she read 'a shrouded history, culture and family ties may bring togetherness. ' A magnified view rose, a threatening form "is Britian under attack, again!?" turned her gaze to the story of the 'Great Battle of Britain' left her feeling plagued "the future and economy is in doubt, the World Health Organisation has declared a Global pandemic" putting her ear to the radio 'the PM has put restrictions in place, avoid non essential travel and contact with others' added to the alarm ' stay home, protect the NHS, save lives' remarked leaders, wondering if there will be enough food to share.

The media's receptive reporting highlighted the number of cases "hospitals are seeing a large portion of patients with COVID-19, some needing specialist care and Intubation, follow 'social distancing' and regular hand washing" she thought 'nobody will be consuming finger licking drumsticks from KFC or American style hamburgers from McDonald's drive-through, until this epidemic clears up! remarking 'house dance is a guaranteed stress buster, turning to YouTube for relief."

Cassie pondered "have the wheels of fate rolled back the Universe to reverse? there's something behind this encumbrance with the PM's letter arriving 'you may only leave the house for limited purposes such as, buying food and medicine, exercising once a day and seeking medical attention' wasn't a welcoming Easter Treat." Cassie was used to living in an atmosphere with drama and where fear reigned, this was no different and read 'Global Warming Threatens Thermoregulation' her chest felt heavy feeling smoggy 'has it moved death in the air, from Russia, China or Germany?' the central issue facing the world was seen in the 1930's and several decades later when the first human coronavirus was spot in the 1960's Cassie delved into the history 'further outbreaks resurfaced in wait, threatening all who live, letting go of fear wasn't on the horizon either." 

Rage broke out in the supermarkets, bulk buying emptied shelves, ques grew for essential needs, although goods could be purchased, tined goods, toilet paper, dairy foods and cereals were in short supply was a reminder when Germany intended to expose France, Italy and Britain to the same food crisis, like a sweat struck England in 1485, left a death toll in its wake as the world was being chipped away. Countries were differing on the edge, tipping the scales was borderline catastrophic 'mind the gap of the already heard and forgotten' held a sound of silence, like a plague taking center stage 'if this is a Stalin attempt to transform nature, look past the fanfare and drama to what is enduring once the cacaphony has died down, turn to God and say 'remember- the devil is in the detail!."

Pressure testing humanity is like a 'pea shooter' firing it's range near and far over shadows a verge of the world's events similar to that of the set up of triage centres in the community to treat those who fell ill 'there is much strength in unity' she thought echoing the efforts of Florence Nightingale with the odds stacked against the Globe 'there is always the chance of getting into the 'as wild as the wind, foxtrot' having to put her dreams of doing the rumba with her soul mate on hold, Cassie shared in the world's grief 'when will the tyrant cov leave off and light begin?"

If modulating fear in a global population is to enhance a 'dopamine' response 'forwards and reverse' shifting attention 'is it safe to sleep now!?'

Mapping their target matter was conducive to 'freeze induced PTS' facilitating fight and flight towards the human threat 'can we breathe now!?'

Wondering if the pathways is 'a top down control circuit essential for survival? feeling 'life can be complicated' with their 'Go and No-Go' occupying even the most of sceptical of individual thinking.
