WTF Community Coronavirus Self-Care Guide


Go ahead…I got it from a friend who I grew up with, and she writes on her FB post below. No name attributed though.
"Some good advice from a psychologist (a friend of a friend) for you and your children. Be safe! :purple_heart:

After having thirty-one sessions this week with patients where the singular focus was COVID-19 and how to cope, I decided to consolidate my advice and make a list that I hope is helpful to all. I can’t control a lot of what is going on right now, but I can contribute this. "


Hey…want to see some free Quarantine concerts from Jorma Kaukonen (Hot Tuna, Jefferson Airplane) - Saturday nites 5p PST/8 EST - then repeats on YouTube - So far there have been 6 concerts…acoustic guitar and accompanied with a few other guitar players. Lots of music lore chit chat…and what guitar he’s using etc…and straight from Fur Peace Ranch.

Tonight was No. #6…but I just went to concert #5 because #6 dropped off. Listen for yourself.


Something uplifting to watch… 2 mins.

Here is a collaboration between US Defense and NZ Defence Forces of a Classic NZ Maori waiata " Tūtira mai ngā iwi"

New Zealand’s lockdown has had all sorts of unexpected results - but one of the more surprising is a musical partnership between the New Zealand and United States armed forces.

Performers from the navy, army and airforce bands have together produced a version of the waiata Tūtira mai ngā iwi and posted it to YouTube.

The song’s composer was Wiremu Te Tau Huata who was a New Zealand military chaplain to the 28th Maori Battalion. His whānau gave permission for the waiata to be used.

One of the drivers of the project was Staff Sergeant Bryan Andrews of the US Air Force Band of the Pacific.

He told Morning Report that his band usually travel all over the Pacific performing for various audiences. They were supposed to send a team to New Zealand in April but the trip was cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
