Sunday, April 19, 2020
Yes this time is scary, stressful and for some, heartbreaking. But it is also a time of opportunity.
Here’s a few suggestions to use this precious hibernation time wisely…
Paint, draw, write, sew, take photo’s, make a collage. Take the time to get creative and do whatever feels good to you
Now is the perfect opportunity to practice what you preach – Reach out to elderly neighbours or venerable people and see how you can help. A weekly shop could mean the world to them right now.

Connect with Others
