Dear members and appreciated participants,
the period we are currently in is different from what we were used to so far. With certainty, this period is an opportunity for us to look at ourselves, to set goals again (small and big steps), to do everything for which there has not been enough time so far…
We would like to share with you some of the glimpses, thoughts, anecdotes that some of our members have provided to us from their home environment in these particular circumstances. This is to encourage members of the association and to raise awareness among the general public about how people with deafblindness spend their quarantine days.




Since we are still in isolation, and I already miss my friends from the  Association DLAN, also employees there, I asked Martina to help me to open a Facebook account so I could at least keep in touch with them until we see each other face to face. I now use Facebook on a daily basis and I am still learning what all I can do with it. After a short lesson, I taught Martina how to make pizza snails, which we happily ate in the end.

Last week, in addition to our walks and hikes in Trebelno, we helped stack firewood for the coming winter (which is no longer so far away). This week, however, we chatted, dug potatoes, and cleaned up the garden. We also went to the store and pharmacy.
