Just one step closer and it is all over
When I walked past this family I noticed them all lying there as 'one household' peering over a cliff edge. I assume that they have been positioned like this because they see the danger and know this is safer than standing. Just one step closer to the edge, they would meet an untimely end.
We have been told to keep in our 'households', to stay two metres away from each other or we could meet an untimely end. We position ourselves in our homes, fear of mixing with others; stepping too close is palpable. We buy toilet roll, 'lie down' and button down the hatches only to emerge as a unit, venturing outside only to take our daily exercise..
