Brief Update

Five bikes – powered by two adults and three children – carried balloons, flowers, and packages across town, voices raised on repeat: ‘Happy birthday to you.”

When townsfolk stopped to shout out: “Whose birthday?”, they replied: “VJ’s!”

Our family of five Ukrainians have been settled in their own home since June 22, and remain a close part of our family. Our next family arrives the third week in August.

Hosting displaced Ukrainians has been the most life-expanding thing we’ve done in our lives.

The adventure, and the joy, continue.

(My birthday was in July; I am just slow in reporting.)

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.
