Hello dear reader,
You OK? Staying home?
Are you enjoying the abundance of free time that has been gifted to us?
We know, it can get a bit dull, a bit sad at times, a bit lonely, too quiet or too loud in quarantine.
But it can also be enjoyable...
There are so many things we are finally able to do since we don't have the excuse 'I ain't got time for that'...
Don't worry, it doesn't mean you have to be super productive all the time. Everything that is happening is so overwhelming that it is ok to sit back and look outside or stare at the ceiling, to think for endless hours, process, heal, plan and carry on.
There is also time to discover the meaning of the Italian phrase 'Il dolce far niente' or 'The beauty of doing nothing', or to enjoy little simple moments and beauty and culture and open our minds and receptors to new things, new art forms, new styles of films and books and tv and forms of entertainment.
To do our part, we will be updating you with a series of links and pages where you can find grand collections of curated animations and short films, to discover, to enjoy and to pass the time.
Click on the links below and open up the floodgates!
