Inward/Outward Bound April 28, 2021
     
Welcome to our bi-weekly edition of curated items which we hope will interest you.

We have retitled it Inward/Outward Bound to reflect the increasing number of Outward activities available.

During this last year of Pandemic lockdown, quarantines, staying at home, we have concentrated on things which we hoped would be informative, uplifting and entertaining – from your home.
 
Now, with vaccination rates increasing, and more and more venues opening up, we want to expand our offerings to include some of these opportunities.

Let's rejoice in expanding our horizons. Enjoy!
FIRST, A COUPLE OF INWARD ITEMS:
Adorable Cat and Dog Share The Same Fur Colors
Another cat video? 
Yes, but this one includes a dog, too, and they have amazingly similar
markings.                 
Item -- Moose licking cars. 
At last, a problem that we don’t have: Canadians ask drivers not to let Moose lick their cars.
THEN, SOME OUTWARD OFFERINGS:


You will be able to find open restaurants easily, so we want to share other kinds of venues and openings here.

Complete list: Here is a comprehensive site for checking out what is open and available.

Note, many of these venues still have virtual tours as well.

Spring
     
Welcome back to Inward Bound, our curated list of sites and activities. We hope to lift your spirits and provide good cheer
 
It’s April, and the flowers are starting to come up

 The name April is derived from the Latin word aperit which means to open. April is the month when flowers and trees begin to open.

The bright color palette made by daffodils, iris, tulips and azalea is especially welcome this year. The early spring flowers encourage us to look ahead --- to the bounty of summer --- and a long awaited return to some of our favorite activities.
FLOWERS PUT ON QUITE A SHOW.

Poetry

This issue is about the intense emotions --expressions, poetic and otherwise -- that help us experience the magic and beauty of life.

History and Other Diversions
Through this year in Pandemic mode we've tried to bring interesting ways of looking outside while staying inside. 
We think that there is finally light at the end of this tunnel. . .

Remember When....
As we have settled in at home, our screens have become our “go to” for maintaining connections. 24/7 we can reach for our TVs, phones or tablets --- to laugh and have fun with friends and family, to meet and carry on the work of TTN and our other organizations, to learn about almost anything and, of course, to be entertained. Clearly, screens contribute to our well-being and resilience.
Remember when you raced home to see your favorite TV show? When seeing the latest movie was the highlight of a weekend? In this edition of Inward Bound we invite you to travel back in time and enjoy some gems from the Golden Age of Television and Movies.
