How are you pivoting in the pandemic?

Today I particpated in the most beautiful, joyous zoom workshop. I was almost thanking COVID for bringing all these wonderul people together.

First some background  thanks to my gorgeous friends Jenny and Angela I am huge fan of the Belvoir St Theatre and our group have shared many wonderful lunches, plays and post play debriefs over the past few years.

All of that stopped with COVID and we have all being doing our bit via donations to ensure the Belvoir can ride out the pandemic.

When Belvoir’s online workshop, Body & Voice Fundamentals in Camera led by Anna Houston popped into my Inbox  I thought it looked interesting and signed up more to support them rather than something I would attend.

I got a reminder yesterday, noticed I was free at the appointed time and tuned it.

Anna did the Harry Potter wizard wand thing at the beginning. If you could wave your magic wand what outcome would you like from this workshop?

As it turns out the same two magic wand moments that resonated for me resonated for Anna and she made it happen for these two people.

We all want to be the best version of ourselves and as these people said “its hard to hide on zoom when turning your video camera on is mandatory for a meeting”

Our Young Farming Champions have had the opportunity to particpate in workshops with people who come from the same background as Anna. I have seen how their lives have changed from the opportunity.

I wish every introvert had an Anna in their lives. There may just be a place left for you
