2020 feels like something out of an apocalyptic dystopian dime novel.
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed our lives in many ways and people are feeling more unsure and disconnected than ever before. In the spirit of comfort and community, the Bamboo Ridge ohana wants to encourage everyone to write, to read, and to remember that our shared experiences make us stronger. We’ve started a new video series with Bamboo Ridge writers sharing their poems and stories and reading direct to you from their own homes. Words and stories are powerful and we hope that these pieces inspire and entertain you. It’s a series we hope to continue regardless of when the stay-at-home orders are lifted. Our hearts are with you. We hope that you’ll subscribe to our YouTube channel and check back often for more great readings. #BambooRidgeatHome
