Many of the seafarers fear for their families given the corona virus crisis. They worry about their ability to provide, the health of their families, being away from their loved ones at this crucial time.
This effort gives them some tips on how to stay positive and able in these trying times.
this little guy is Coco. my cohort. He works with me everyday, handling the most difficult cases with gentleness and compassion. He intuitively knows when to approach gently, when to be rambunctious , when to lay down and listen. He asks for nose rubs and cuddles when he senses that they need a little more gentleness. Animals have so much sensitivity and innate kindness that they are very helpful in the healing process.
The weekend finds me resourcing for Carewell Foundation on a play about a spunky child afflicted with cancer whose wild and vivid imagination carry her through the ups and downs of being terminally ill. As she tries to stay strong for mom, her sheer will to live enthuses her to dream up imagined friends with whom she plays with for sprinkles of joy in the midst of sadness. There are many good lines, but my favourite of all is “not having a reason doesn’t make a thing worthless”. Sometimes we are caught up in being productive, showcasing our capability, maximising every opportunity …all the make life worthwhile. Would it then mean that being fallow, resting, sitting with a cup of coffee are endeavours with no worth because they do not have an endpoint? The show suggests that all of life…all of its experiences have value just because they are part of what makes life beautiful.
Catch the play Dani Girl, running on weekends till 8 September 2019
