Despite a very rainy morning we gathered again in the bandstand and made music together. Several people stopped to talk with us as they enjoyed what we were doing. It felt like an outdoor open day!
It was a very happy day yesterday. The weather was sunny, a bit chilly with the sea breeze but we managed to gather again out of doors, the first time since Christmas. I sent out a message to everyone saying bring musical instruments if you wish. As you see from the photos this was welcomed and we had a variety of more conventional instruments as well as found objects such as a CD rack an antique bed-warmer!
I also took along paper and charcoal so we also had some drawing taking place.
It was so good to be together again. keeping in touch by phone has just about kept us going but there's nothing like being re-united as a group.
Roaming and Returning
We're gradually returning to old patterns of meeting, chatting, making things in the wake of Covid. We're glad to be back at Breadline. Even when we couldn't meet, Roamers stayed in touch by telephone, postal projects (details here) and this website. But we're most ourselves and most at ease -- most Roaming -- when we're really together.
