The world is changing every day.
It's time to pay attention. Steve and I want to start this post with a plethora of gratitude to the selfless people who are risking themselves daily to be sure there is medical treatment, food, and medicines available to all of us. From first responders to front line grocery and pharmacy workers, thank you all, truly.
For the rest of us, it's time to hunker down at home. As a very small business, we know as well as anyone, the implication of not earning income. We also know that we would far rather be broke, than dead. (That said, Steve and I have a host of skills if you need paid help on a project).
This pandemic is nothing to be trifled with. So we ask that, if you're not working from home and can, please start. If you are well, watch out for your neighbours. Rediscover the telephone and reach out to people you know. Let them know you're thinking of them. This is going to be a long one.
Still, we're optimistic. We see incredible acts of kindness and selflessness every day (they're there if you look for them). Magical thinking solves nothing. Instead, step back. Take stock. Figure out what to to do build a little fortress, lay in supplies, and stay tuned. We'll still be sending updates once a week via our newsletter (subscribe below), and posting here.
