When business owners were urged to close up shop on March 16, as flattening the curve of the Covid19 had to be a joint effort, I remember the overwhelming feeling of panic… how was I going to keep my businesses running, my employees paid, provide services to our loyal clientele? Thirty years as a salon owner and entrepreneur never looked like this.  Forty-six days later, although I am working from home and not my salon, I still have twenty plus items on my to-do list each day.  As I struggle to get through my list, certain items get dealt with, others are added, and the cycle continues.  Days disappear, into one another like bread dough, which, by the way, I have made for the first time.  I am extremely proud to have finally finished five videos with my sister Donna, crafted to grow awareness of the WORLD brand and support clients and customers that are trying to live a cleaner, healthier lifestyle. I am taking a short break from work to give you an update from my window on the “world”.  

In a year from now, when I think back on the Covid19 shutdown in Spring ‘20, I will remember lining up to buy food, like photos from Russia when the Soviet Union collapsed.  I will remember the “Covoid Shuffle” on sidewalks, trying to maintain a six-foot separation with other pedestrians.  I will remember – from his podium in front of the world – a ridiculous leader “sarcastically” suggesting that we ingest disinfectants to cure Covid19, and that people actually doing it.  As I seek to find some positive during this chaotic time, I also will remember the quiet on the streets, much less traffic, cleaner air, gorgeous spring flowers and taking the opportunity on the weekends to explore our beautiful Toronto.  Ed, Thor and I have walked from one end of the city to the other, and I will have photos to share in an upcoming blog post.  It will be a “CovidTour” of Toronto, photos that will hopefully inspire joy, awe, and a few to give you a good chuckle.

This Covid19 pandemic has thrown us all for a loop, it has changed our lives forever and brought sadness and heartache to many.  My condolences to all who have lost loved ones, I can only image how difficult this has been and to those that are sick with Covid19, I wish you a speedy recovery.

My heartfelt thank you to all front-line health workers that risk everything to keep our communities safe, and to every person that works in an essential services role – we are also grateful for all you do to keep our lives functioning. Two of my closest friends, Jim and Chris from Hoax Couture, a local tailoring company, are now producing cloth masks for local ​long-term care homes​ and First Nations communities and frontline LGBTQ workers. I admire their dedication and drive and if you would like to support them in their efforts, you can find their campaign  at HOAX.   

I really hope that by June, we will get the green light to start carefully opening our businesses and can get back to, I guess what they are calling “the new normal”.   Until then, I’ve included a fun video on Hair Care During Covid19 to help you with your tresses – if you laugh as much as my sister did, I’ve succeeded in offering some humour in managing that lid until you get back to worldSALON 

This pause has created an opportunity for all of us to consider building the space we need to give our lives more meaning, and has nudged us to remember how grateful we must be for the all the love in our lives.

Be safe and keep healthy!

    I’m not sure why but this site is loading very slow for me.
    Is anyone else having this issue or is it a issue on my end?
    I’ll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.

    Hello would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re
    working with? I’m going to start my own blog soon but
    I’m having a hard time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    Hi there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which
    blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had
    issues with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform.
    I would be great if you could point me in the direction of
    a good platform.
