This too shall pass

The other day a dear colleague wrote to us in regards to the current situation: “Life is mental right? Fucking nuts.” Nothing to add here.

Pretty much the whole world is in a lockdown, united in one global annoyance about these little virus buggers and sharing restrictions, anxieties and uncertainty of what will come. It seems just like R.E.M. sang it: “It’s the end of the world as we know it “.

What now?

Be Excellent To Each Other.Until this day Bill said it best (sorry Ted)!This, our credo, Holds all the more significance in these times.As host to roughly 50,000 guests per year, we obviously are concerned with the safety and well being of our guests as well as that of our colleagues and community. It, therefore, was only consequential to close our doors for as long as the lockdown continues to not endanger the safety of our guests, colleagues and neighbours.We are now using the oldest trick in the book to distract us from the outside developments. What every student does when she needs to prepare for exams. What your parents force you to do, even though it is not necessary. What is done when the stage is cleared, the lights are..

Divided, we fall.

This week each one of us will have their moment of power in shaping the outcome of what will form our future. Head to the polls and let every voice be heard!
Let’s stand together and help create something bigger than us.
