Connections

PROMPT: “Only Connect"  | GROUP: In This Together

    1. FaceTime. I always FaceTime my cousin at least once a week anyway, because we live hours apart, but now we do it more than ever.
    2. Zoom. Whether it's with my co-op, my youth group, or my other friends, it's great to get a group together and just talk.
    3. Hanging out. If I haven't been around anyone else for a week, I just get together with two friends who are equally as isolated and...

Finding Conection

PROMPT: “Only Connect"  | GROUP: In This Together

This whole pandemic has really caused our society to fall apart in more ways than one with several issues not exactly connected but still very real.

While adjusting to this change I have found comfort in connecting with fellow believers over Zoom chats. I started a Bible study on Zoom so now every Thursday I'm on there and I just feel relieved, glad, positive; you know how it is.

So, I would say Zoom is definitely the first of five...

Still Non-Stop

PROMPT: “Only Connect"  | GROUP: In This Together

  1. Virtual plays! My theater has already released five fully-virtual plays, and another is in the works right now. Everything from auditions to the final shoot can be done via Zoom or Google Meets.
  2. Choreography sessions. My online dance classes for the summer are over for now, but I still often meet with some other dancers to work on choreographing pieces for shows in the future.
  3. Long-distance chats. My aunt lives in Germany, and usually we only get to see her...

Connection

PROMPT: “Only Connect"  | GROUP: In This Together

Texts, calls, 
Messages, likes. 

Tweets, videos, pictures
All the stuff from the Camera Roll. 

FaceTime and Zoom
Can't forget about Teams
The video chatting of the century 

It's easy to see you and me
Over screen, within one, two, three
Seconds
But when it's over

I can't hug or high five you
Six feet apart is farther than I thought

And all I can connect with is, 
my phone and all.

This is how we connect..

PROMPT: “Only Connect"  | GROUP: In This Together

I believe that all of us are members of an amazing family named Humanity. And yes, that is how we connect. If we feel sorry for some random homeless person starving due to the lock-down and offer them food or help, that is how we connect. If we feel empathetic towards our faraway siblings from all those distant continents and nations who are suffering from the deadly disease, that is how we connect. If we feel proud of our health...

Connections

PROMPT: “Only Connect"  | GROUP: In This Together

We all are connected by the same oxygen we inhale,
we share the bright sun and calming moon.
we share the twinkling stars
We all have to consume food for nourishment
we need to sleep to live.



We are connected by feelings
We are all in tears or bounded by some fears
My smile on your face, my tear in your eyes.
My heart beats for you and you feel it.
Even though I can't see you, be mesmerized by...

Ways I've Stayed Connected

PROMPT: “Only Connect"  | GROUP: In This Together

Zoom - Zoom has helped me continue with my piano lessons. It's also been used by some universities that I know of. I even attended a online information evening through zoom. It was quite interesting! 

Emails - I use emails to stay connected with my pen pal. If I say so myself, it's been fun sending emails back and forth. It's so exciting whenever I get a new email from my pen pal!

Google Meet - Google Meet is what...

connecting during quarantine

PROMPT: “Only Connect"  | GROUP: In This Together

1. Zoom calls.
Time to judge everyone's living room furniture and frantically arrange mine.

2. Google Hangouts because my sad, uncultured butt doesn't have a phone.
I'll send all of my contacts a virtual hug, then an unappetizing picture of the ruined muffins I'd tried to bake and ended up burning.

3. Discord.
We'll all have a jolly time posting memes and harassing the bots, then name each other safari animals and laugh until our stomachs hurt. Ah, good times.

Fragments Of Hope In A World In Turmoil

PROMPT: “Only Connect"  | GROUP: In This Together

1. Through patchy internet and phones hanging on the highest possible curtain railing, seeking out a more reliable signal in vain, come the faces of some of those I miss the most. Three blissful hours a week, talking, laughing and listening.

2. Music is my lifeline, and like the blood flowing through my veins connecting the extremities to the rest of me, the notes bring us closer together.

3. Inching away, wincing if I get too close, but relief as...
