Nothing

We have a malaise. And we are not doing anything. Or going anywhere. We are achieving nothing. We have missed the lantern making session, the carols in the woods, the Christmas stars activities, the evening walk. And what can I say we have achieved today instead? Nothing. Nada. Bugger all.

We have achieved so little today, another will say it better.

Something is but nothing
something it is not
nil plus nil is nothing
nothings what i got
Nothing on the tele
Nothing going on
Nothing to get worked up about
Nothing by the ton
Nothing times a million
Nothing minus ten
Don't say nothing to no one
It's nothing to do with them
Come all the way from nowhere
and now I'm nowhere else
where nothing is out of place
No one lives
and nothing smells
talking to no one
it's like talking to the wall
i give you what i get
i give you bugger all

Thank you, John Cooper Clarke.

It doesn't sound like you've got a heck of a lot going on right now. Less is more, right?

Poor you (pl). Not the best time of year to be sick ;-( Presumably a lot of reading quietly is in order?

i feel moved to sing:
'nothing comes from nothing, nothing ever could...
so some where in my youth,
or childhood...
i must have done something - good!'
