Two resources you might find of support as we head deeper into these times of solitude, in which so much of what we’ve taken for granted is called into question.
The first, a conversation about joy and fear, and how we might keep including everything as the weeks unfold. From the ‘Turning Towards Life’ podcast I’ve been doing for two and a half years with my friend and colleague Lizzie Winn. You can find the video here, and the audio by searching for ‘Turning Towards Life’ on your favourite podcast app.
The second, a brilliantly clear, calm and illuminating documentary made by my brother David Wise, and his company Parable. In just under an hour it explains much about why it’s an act of care to keep ourselves physically distant from one another, exactly what’s meant by ‘self-isolation’, and how to take care of yourself right now. It’s beautifully filmed (and beauty really matters right now), and includes interviews with people who know, deeply, what they’re talking about. You may only be able to see this if you’re in the UK.
Stay well. And take good care of yourselves.
