We are all present, let’s start

Hello family! It has indeed been a while. I am glad we are here, but sadly, in anxious moments. Our world is united in mourning. Countries are losing their citizens. Economies are strained.

But we can make it a little easier for everybody, can’t we?

It takes choosing differently, opting to be on the side of the those who calm the storms. Our world is scary already and does not need any more gory stories. Please join me in dedicating April to stories of hope. Look around you, find goodness, spot people acting kindly, celebrate them. 

There is little to no interaction with the world, this season, but may we go deep into our hearts, to search for good moments, for stories that made us. We may also have to think hard before we share the next story. Will it further dim or brighten the readers’ outlook.

Let us be the reason people want to try again, why they want to be alive tomorrow. Let us rekindle hope. Be here, this month, to share in my real stories, my thoughts.

  1. I don’t trade in misery, nor in woozy, good feely stuff. I focus dispassionately on the real. And reality is the situation is not as bad as it seems. So let’s be of good cheer and be tempered in our responses. We’ll all see out the season and be wiser and stronger for it.
