Reflections from lockdown…Day 5 : wholesome

Reflections from lockdown

Day 5 ….wholesome

All around the world, as people stayed home to stay safe, our fast food services closed and restaurants were forced to stop…. we needed to feed ourselves.

People were reminded of the wholesomeness of baking their own bread.

The fun of making a loaf of banana bread or trying a new muffin recipe.

People cooked for their families and women started WhatsApp recipe swops remincent of their grandmother’s days.

We learnt to rely on our own skills, perfect those we were lacking and try new ideas to sustain our homes.

But mostly,

With a virus threatening us all …young, old, rich, poor, black and white …. we were reminded to stay humble, to embrace the wholesomeness of life and enjoy the simpler things in life.
