WIL in Lockdown

These mini interviews were a snapshot in time: APRIL - JUNE 2020. They tried to capture a small part of the Covid experience from WIL supporters all over the world. We know that the Covid Crisis is not over but many countries have emerged from lockdown and are entering a new period so we are closing submissions. It was uplifting and inspiring to hear your voices from all over the world and good to know that we were and still are, all in it together. Thank you for sharing.

You can still listen to the uplifting and eclectic playlist generated by the participants.

What are you most thankful for?
The humanness we have mustered despite the adversity and the isolation.
What are your hopes for the future?
For the pace of life to be aligned to the needs of humanness and not to the needs of financial gain.
How are you feeling today?
Grateful to be knee deep in a pile of lighting designs, exploring my creative mind whilst listening to a little Pavarotti. I am warm and sheltered by the wintery cold and my pace is mine to choose.

“We’re all under the same sky and walk the same earth; we’re alive together during the same moment.”

Maxine Hong Kingston, ‘The Woman Warrior’
