"Expanded Perspectives"



Inward Bound is TTN-NYC's special initiative while some of us are in Covid 19 sheltering-in-place restrictions. Every Wednesday we send you an Inward Bound email featuring a "curated" list of links for items we hope you will find interesting and engaging. 
Many of us are in lock-down mode, but it doesn't stop us from thriving!

In an effort to be mindful in this complex time, we looked this week for links that will bring us closer to the issues, expand our perspective, and also provide solace and comfort.

"Get up & Do It"

Inward Bound is our special initiative during the stay-at-home period. Each Wednesday we send you a curated list of links we hope will interest you. With Inward Bound, we have traveled far beyond our homes --- visiting wonderful exhibits, enjoying performances and touring the great cities of the world. We hope along the way we have lifted your spirits and given your day an extra spark.
 
This week it's time to get up and do it! Make an elegant (and easy) lunch and take it outside for a socially distanced picnic. Learn the gentle movements of beginning hula and tackle things you may have been putting off --- does your favorite plant need a new pot? Always wanted to try basic yoga poses and see what it's all about?
