When I paint the worries of the world just go away. What about you?
My colleague Helen and I have been working with youth for many years and this year is no exception. Tonight we gave two online workshops after working all day with youth in a school, I am so grateful to surround myself with the enthusiasm and energy of youth. They think we are helping them,but they rejuvenate me.
With schools about to go online Monday and many changes about to occur because of the rising cases of Covid in Calgary; it’s extremely important to follow all guidelines .
|21,053 Confirmed cases||5,028 Active cases||15,837 Recovered cases||121 in hospital||20 in intensive care||188|
It’s also important to take care of your own well being, so just for today I will say NOT TODAY Covid I will not give you my piece of mind.
As I begin my year virtually , I look forward to working with students and staff. I have wanted to contribute in a positive way in this pandemic, so as I navigate around what I think will be most helpful, I hope you too will contribute ideas and resources that will help others.

It is always a good day to get outside for a walk. Today I walked about five hours breathing in the fresh air letting the sunny Alberta skies shine upon my face. When you can get outdoors do so. It’s good for your mental and physical health. It’s always a good day when you make the effort to get outside especially gratifying when you are in a pandemic .
Think of your own ideas and make your own KINDNESS calendar.
