This animated short video speaks of many things that have occupied our lives and have been branded into our psyche.” during the pandemic. Naomi Shihab Nye’s poem Kindness begins with; “Before you know what kindness really is you must lose things, feel the future dissolve in a moment like salt in a weakened broth.”
This poem, first published in 1980, continues to guide us into a new way of being: “Before you know kindness as the deepest thing inside, you must know sorrow as the other deepest thing.”
Nye’s words hold great relevance for us now as we not only negotiate the great losses of the pandemic, but also try to reemerge into a new normal, hopefully with a renewed sense of the power of kindness.
With this in mind, I would like to I invite you to explore some of the ICWIB! art activities and videos for FREE because they are a wonderful way for both children and adults to connect deeply with their authentic nature and embrace their new normal.
