We drove to our favorite field where we like to watch movies in the bus or picnic in the summer and I knew we only had a couple of hours before I had “plans” with a friend. I sat barefoot in the bus when Timo said he wanted to show me something outside. Read on for the whole story.
Sometimes we forget to breathe. Before the COVID 19 crisis, we were all stuck in this hamster wheel of just running all the time and filling our calendars to the brim and not slowing down. Then the pandemic hit and forced us all to slow down in many areas.
Who else wanted to escape real life lately? I know I have. In fact last week it was all I wanted to do. I did not want to look at my phone or at my computer or any screen for that matter. All I wanted to do was escape reality and live in a world of my own. But then my heart started to shift…
In my house, we started saying things like «remember when we used to…» and then we insert things like «take a trip to the Atlantic», «go shopping in France» or «have coffee with a friend». We say it jokingly but also with a yearning.
We are created for human connection and for community. We need it now more than ever yet the current state of our world is sending us all into isolation, staying at home.
