COVID Conversations – words from the community – tell us your story
So it’s been over a month now of self-isolating here in Toronto, and pretty much everywhere else in the world. At first there was panic and uncertainty, then acceptance and confusion, and now adaptation and change.
This is where we’re at for now, and as for the future, no one really knows. Not the government, medical professionals, scientists, or the World Health Organization. Speculation and modelling methods can be made based on past pandemics and outbreaks, but we are living in different times now.
So as we all standby and wait to see what may unfold, many have been turning toward adapting to this change and creating new opportunities. Businesses have to revise their business models, and individuals have to find ways to occupy their idle time with. We’ve seen an explosion of creativity from many different people – celebrities, artists, musicians, students, and your everyday working heroes.
So what we here at theBUZZ want to know is what YOU have been up to since this outbreak disrupted our daily routines. Have you learned something new, watched some interesting films, taking up a new exercise regime, tried out some new technology, continued working as per usual in an essential job, developed your cooking skills, or just taking the time to reflect on your life and what you want your future to look like when we come out of this at the other end?
Whatever it is you’ve been doing is the right thing for you, and we want to hear about it and possibly inspire others with some new ideas as well. We’re all in this together, and sharing our thoughts is a great way to keep us together. In this time of uncertainty, there’s one statement that we can abide by, and that is “Creativity is the Cure.”
So let’s hear what’s on your mind. Send us a short write up of what you’ve been up to, along with a short paragraph telling us a bit about yourself, and an image or two we can use with the post. Send to to firstname.lastname@example.org
Stay safe, see you all soon!
