This Sunday, April 5: Let’s Co-Create Resilience and Resourcefulness

Because we all need to come together in new ways, I’m starting a Sunday Burst of Strength, Solidarity and Support.

Let’s come together for 30 minutes to breathe, meditate and journal/sketch.

Bring your favorite mat, chair, notebook, and pens or markers. We’ll leave a few minutes for sharing wisdom at the end.

6 p.m. Europe/CET time  | 12 p.m. ET | 9 a.m. PT

The plan is to make this a weekly gathering for the next few weeks as we move through coronavirus-related confinement. Continue reading This Sunday, April 5: Let’s Co-Create Resilience and Resourcefulness

The First Supermarket Trip After 18.5 Days At Home

We are in a brave new world, and journaling about this pandemic-quarantine experience is helping me get through the long days. Some days we are motivated. Other days, less so.  The only way forward is by going through it. I posted this journal entry on my Facebook wall on April 1, 2020. I wanted to share it here, too. Courage, everyone!

Today, I ventured outside and went to the local supermarket.

Surreal. Weird. Unsettling. Calm. Resilient. Tense. Distant. Communal. Uncertain. All of these sensations hit me at different moments as I walk through the empty streets.

A four-year flashback: First Steps Lead to More Steps

“Let’s just get to that next pole. We can rest there,” I tell Lluís, pointing ahead about 200 meters.

It wasn’t a pole. It was a half-constructed, load-bearing concrete substructure designed to support the weight of a road or train tracks being built over our heads. In the +33-degree Celsius (91 degree Fahrenheit) hot, sticky and uncomfortable Thai heat the phrase “load-bearing structure” never entered my mind. At that moment, I was my own load-bearing structure, with about 40 pounds on my back. Words didn’t come easy. That pole, or whatever it was, was my salvation, and so was the one after that, and the one after that.
