I do hope this month’s post finds you well. There have been many losses during the past few weeks, but also some moments to celebrate. I’d love to know how you are coping and if there is anything I can do to support you during this tumultuous time.
To unwind from the heavy reality we are facing, I picked up Oil! by Upton Sinclair. Set in the early 20th century, it bears a prescient message for us as we emerge from the chaos of 2020.
I also got busy writing an online course on Digital Storytelling. For the parents among us who need a break from kids, feel free to hook them up to the content folder. It’s rated PG and is appropriate for ages 10+.
A friend sent me Vikingur Olafsson‘s extraordinary rendition of Bach’s Organ Sonata no. 4. A bit of melancholy to match with the times. A visual artist whose somber works echo these notes is Ronit Joy Holtz. Her paintings conjure feelings of history and connect to a shared future. All of Ronit’s work can be seen on her website.
Although many of us are still in some stage of lockdown, it’s important to move. You can follow along with my quick exercise series on Instagram for a solid full body workout. Repeat as many times as necessary to get the PUMP.
Stay healthy and hopeful.
