Ensuring the youngest’s development while Phare kindergarten is closed

Realising our first circus “summer camp” with the Metta Karuna’s kids

COVID-19: Help the Brightness of the Arts keep on shining

I never imagined to be in the midst of a global pandemic during my lifetime. It is as if we have been thrown into an horror movie activating our survival instincts. Everyone in the world is being impacted in some way or another.
