When is the future?

The family is out on another morning cycle ride and so I’ve got the radio on. A connection to the outside world, a chance to be outside my box. Today there’s news about family feuds at the richest end of society “something that puts our challenges under lockdown into perspective” apparently, I’m not sure that I can ever connect myself with the family that used to own the Ritz but perhaps I should, maybe it would have made more sense if I’d listened to the first part

Living in a virtual world

Morning all, another week in the house begins, after another weekend of dancing in the living room and so I thought it was about time I started talking about all the ways that Chrysalis has developed over the last few weeks.

Stand ready for some stats

Chrysalis exists to break down the barriers of isolation, to enable people to make connections, to feel free to be authentic and to explore what that authenticity means. Since the 18th March we have been working on how to bring our group members all the benefits of Chrysalis into their virtual worlds.

Thanks to all

Congratulations to our London Marathon runner Amy who continues to run and raise money for Chrysalis in her home city, patiently waiting and training for the day that she can come over to the UK and run for us. Amy ran a socially distant marathon in Seattle over the weekend and has already raised £1000 for us. If you want to sponsor Amy then click https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/AmyStricherz

It feels like we are now reaching the calmer waters on the other side. The frantic activity to get Chrysalis running virtually is paying off: our support groups are back up and running and our one-to-one counselling is now starting to support not only current clients but also to take people off the waiting list. Time perhaps to enjoy the sunshine, admire the resurgence of wildlife and start planning something nice for the future.

Morning all! Another lovely sunny day to view through the window (really must clean it) and I have a new view to admire. This quite time is a time of house or self improvement for many, even here there has been cleaning going on (although [not] clearly not including my window) and so for the pipe fanciers among you I present my new view! Good, isn’t it? There’s slopes and everything, gravity can now have it’s wicked way with the water. (more…)
