Along for the Ride - Issue #72

Heya friends, happy Friday!
Hope everybody is hanging in there all right. As we start to slowly (very slowly) and steadily emerge from isolation, lockdown, shelter-in-place, or whatever you want to call it, we get to start expanding our bubbles (location, and health-status depending of course). I’m finding I am cycling distances I used to find appalling just to spend an hour sitting in a park 2m away from a singular friend, and how when push comes to shove, the pedalling is worth it. That mobility is truly a mechanism to connect us. To our people, our jobs, our favourite bakery, and neighbourhood parks. To our life.
So will that slightly mushy note aside, I hope this edition of the newsletter inspires you to connect a little deeper and reminds you how important this work is.
