Orcas communicate in song.

Listen to a story about the orca orchestra.

Feel.

Super rare footage from Woodstock alongside the equally rare 1991 funk release – ‘3 Days Man!’ by Australian band Bellydance. What a moment.

Wonder.

“Being stuck at home for a few weeks and months, forced to homeschool, is a daunting prospect – but also a tremendous opportunity to cultivate the virtues of independence and original thinking.”

Extra bits.

A good word:
allies
(noun, plural)
Associations with others for a common cause or purpose.
How wonderful that I am surrounded by plant and animal allies. 

A good pocket-sized book for isolation:
Weed Forager’s Handbook: A guide to edible and medicinal weeds in Australia 

A good artist:
Tamara Dean.
