THis time-capture reflects positivity
during the first wave.
Seems this second period of isolation is very different. Whereas previously
we'd acted as a community displaying outwardly positive acts of resilience, now we are all hunkering down in isolation.
My thoughts are with the elderly, the fragile, those living alone, people with disabilities, families struggling with unemployment, home schooling and restricted physical /social activities. I am also concerned for the dignity of the individual for whom a mask prevents the sharing of smiles and positive responses. It is at times like this where we draw upon technology, smart phones, tablets, the internet.
While I haven't met most in my neighbourhood (Fyansford) or online communities (Geelong in Historical Pictures, Fyansford Community Noticeboard, Fyansford.com....) I do feel that I know quite a few of you and I am thankful for our ongoing interactions. I will use this page to share interactive ideas with people within my Fyansford.com network.
Even if only one suggestion takes your fancy, Great!

We all have something that makes us feel alive, a pursuit that adds a little extra meaning to life, an activity that gives us a sense of fulfillment and purpose.
I count myself especially lucky in that my life in education involved my three primary passions ~ teaching, writing and photography, Post retirement I continued to enjoy these passions.
My darling partner in life, Mary, enjoys cooking and more-recently knitting. However, it would be true to say that oil-painting has been her primary life-long passion.
I have a friend who enjoys surfing the net searching for beautiful photos, pieces of artwork and interest-rousing oddities which take his fancy. He then posts these online for the enjoyment of others.
Another has enjoyed a long-term interest in blog-writing. More recently she has embarked on researching family ancestry.
For another the focus is on the exploration of creative photography; and when I say creative photography I mean out-of-this-world creativity.
