A friend sends links of live videos which offer hope and peace. She is busy and misses out on one. And then she sits watching news from New York and then Quebec. Her heart aches and she cannot seem to shake off the grief for so many people. An hour earlier she had sent three self videos to loved ones showing how healthy and fine she is, offering best wishes for Easter. Easter is a time to rejoice …a time for rebirth.
Another alert from her tablet sounds the arrival of a message from her friend who sends her two more links…one is gospel music which shifts her mood and the other is Andrea Bocelli: Music for Hope. She had forgotten to tune into this live.
this time for hope
Looking from her patio window, she smiles. A couple meet in front of her building. She wishes she could have captured the 4 inch heels but that would have looked too nosy [chuckles]. It was so adorable to see the brief encounter and a few hours before the police car passed by checking up on the neighbourhood and social-distancing.
