Numbers

525: the number of displaced Ukrainians on my list needing hosts.

525 out of the 300,000 who have applied for refuge in Canada.

I am one of a team of a dozen.

7 days ago I hit a wall. The pain just doesn’t want to subside. So now my team is -1.

The numbers haunt me.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

  1. Your contributions to date are significant! Taking care of self must come first, to enable care for all the others in your life (Canadians and Ukrainians). I’m encouraged that Canada is taking in so many – fingers crossed all who want the move can find a receptive home. Take care (and pat yourself on the back for all you’ve done!)

  2. I’m sorry to hear you’re dealing with pain, VJ. I hope it subsides soon. Speaking of numbers, I find it distressing that the war in Ukraine has dropped to a lower level of importance in news reporting.
