Learning from the Pandemic

“Children, everybody, here’s what to do during war: In a time of destruction, create something — a poem, a parade, a community, a school, a vow, a moral principle, a peaceful moment.” — Maxine Hong Kingston, The Fifth Book of Peace

  Like others, all over the world, I celebrated the clean air, blue skies, and the peace and quiet. I enjoyed the singing of the birds which could be heard as never before. I was also mindful of the enormous suffering and hardship for thousands. I kept them in my heart and sent healing and love and was grateful for my Mindfulness practice that kept me calm and healthy.

I began to appreciate my home, its light and beauty, the artefacts so lovingly collected over the years and the comfort it brought me, in a new way.
