Regardless of your stance on EU, regardless of your political inclination or your feeling of being in a majority or minority, we now need to move on.

We need to dig deep, and focus on the good things. We need to move beyond the pain of nearly and start in this new space of uncertainty, accepting uncertainty as certain – and accepting that 4% is 4%.

Cue  Nina Simone – “Feeling Good” – and understanding that the wounds of the street fight of the past week may take some time to get over… But here is a start.

Birds flyin’ high, you know how I feel
Sun in the sky, you know how I feel
Breeze driftin’ on by, you know how I feel
It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life for me.
Yeah, it’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life for me, ooooooooh…
And I’m feelin’ good.

Fish in the sea, you know how I feel
River runnin’ free, you know how I feel
Blossom on the tree, you know how I feel
It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life for me,
And I’m feelin’ good

Dragonfly out in the sun, you know what I mean, don’t you know,
Butterflies all havin’ fun, you know what I mean.
Sleep in peace when day is done: that’s what I mean,
And this old world is a new world and a bold world for me…

Stars when you shine, you know how I feel
Scent of the pine, you know how I feel
Yeah, freedom is mine, and I know how I feel..
It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life for me
[scat]
And I’m feelin’… good.

It is now time to move on – accepting that uncertainty is the only certainty we have and that democracy is the only way to move forward.
