HEATHER DINAS ︎ CACTUS FLOWER
During isolation the world stopped and took a breath. After the initial shock and fear dissipated we were left to find a new rhythm. Time slowed down to a quiet hum. Every where there were signs to beware, to draw lines and guard our outer gate. As the amenities were all closed my 3 year old daughter and I wandered through the neighbourhood streets. She drew us into the present moment, to pause and revel. Her joy and up close enthusiasm created bridges of connection. Passing strangers would stop and talk rather than walk on by. The serendipity of these fortuitous meetings, made us feel welcomed and enhanced our sense of community.
‘I like this feeling of not being divided, I do. If we can open up a bit more with each other and share stories, our real stories, that’s what breaks down barriers.
But in order to do that you have to believe that your story has value.’
