Something we need more of.
It’s keeping the human world together in a time of significant isolation.
Finding ways to collaborate during lock downs has kept some people from breaking down.
Whether it’s co-hosting a family quiz, art swapping via post, virtual group exhibitions, online choirs, garden walking to raise money for charity, clapping in your doorways or any of the other brilliant ways that society has found to collaborate and be together in an extremely trying, sad and distanced year.
It’s kept us going, kept us connected and challenged our creativity.
Finding ways to help your neighbours, dog walking, food shopping for those who can’t get out, those who are shielding and vulnerable.
We are now in our third lockdown of 2020 and it is not the warm, summer of the first one. This one is dark and cold and bleak.
This lockdown means no Christmas and no family gatherings.
For those who struggled with the isolation the first and second time, this one will be even more difficult.
If you didn’t reach out before, now is the time to do so.
Whether it’s to ask for or offer help.
Constantly finding new ways to work together.
Collaboration is the way forward….
