After two months of emergency, I was finally allowed to visit seniors from the Home of St. Alois in Pilsen. I had to stay outside behind the fence, but at least I could see them again! I even came with my dog Márlíček, with whom we have been going there regularly for several years to practice yoga and sing. I missed them so much already!
It was a beautiful, touching meeting. I handed over pictures and letters from Pilsen children and children from kindergartens, which I collected before, to “my” grandmothers and grandfathers in the senior home:
Márlíček was even allowed to go and stay among the inhabitants of the home and everyone was happy about it! Each one of the elderly people could give him a snack and caress him :-).
We talked for a while and then suddenly one grandmother, who had never sung much before, started singing all by herself! I was very pleasantly surprised! We all started singing and I played the ukulele.
You should see all those shining eyes, we were so happy to see each other again. It warms my heart so much that I could make them happy and tell them that I love them all!
I love “working” with children and seniors; they are immediate, sincere, open, they like to sing, they are creative and have great wisdom, purity and depth in them. I am grateful to be able to be part of it.
