Our next Writers and Editors meeting scheduled for July 18, 2020 at 10AM will be our first ever virtual meeting using Zoom. It is also our ever-popular members readings. All WEN members are invited to read a five minute selection of their work. If you wish to read something, please register with Jasmine Jackman by sending an email to jasminejackman13@gmail.com .
Even if you are not reading, we hope than many of you can participate via Zoom which has become quite popular and is being used by many other writing clubs during this pandemic. It is a great opportunity to see everyone again.
I am willing to help with Zoom technical requirements. You will require a computer or laptop with a video camera and microphone. If you are using a tablet such as an Ipad or a smartphone, these will work just fine. To load Zoom and try it out, go to zoom.us/download and download the client. If you are having difficulty or have any questions, please respond to this post. It is important to have everything working well before the meeting.

Once again, it is necessary to cancel our next WEN breakfast meeting on Saturday, June 20, 2020 due to Covid restrictions. Our meeting in July is our ever-popular members readings where each of you gets a chance to read one of your creations. There is a 5 minute time limit. If you wish to read, please send an email to jasminejackman13@hotmail.com who will coordinate the readings.

Because of Covid, the plan is to have a virtual meeting on Saturday, July 18 at 10AM using Zoom assuming restrictions are still in place. For this reason, we encourage all members to install the Zoom application and test it out. You must have the necessary equipment with a built-in microphone and webcam. Most newer laptops, ipads or smartphones will work fine.

Please respond to this post with any technical questions and I will attempt to answer them.

I would like to share my thoughts, my feelings, on Black Lives Matter! With everyone, at WEN because, I feel that we all need to come together even, when we are apart; and stand-up, speak-up, and write, about what is important in this world. Thank you, Be Well! Be You! Just Be! ~Wendy ComeauIt Matters What Your Heart Sees!

Your heart is not open, your heart is not kind, if you cannot see from your heart, instead of your mind. You, do not see clearly, you, do not see me, when you open your mouth and say, I am not me. Colour, is not, what makes me, it does not break me, I am who I am, because, of my heart. The colour you see, is only a small part. I am me, I am love, I am peace, I am joy, and I am pure heart. That, is what I carry inside of me. I will not be like you, oh no! I will always be me; the unique person I am. My heart is pure love. My skin colour is not the same as yours, however, you see, I am as, unique as, I can be, I am me. I see with my heart, my heart does not look at you, and see the colour, I think you, should be. I look at you, and I see that unique person I would like to be. The person who loves, to inquire and say, I wonder how, a heart can be that way? Kind, and loving, deep to the core, I do not look with my eyes and say, I do not love you, I do not care, simply because, of your skin colour, and hair. There is a much deeper, view to see, what makes you, you; and what makes me, me. The lens you use, to view me, and the lens I choose, to view you; I choose the perspective of love, that is the lens I use to view you. So, please do not, tell me, that you cannot see me, from the same perspective I view you. You, are just as unique, as, I am you see. I know, that when, you choose to open your heart, you, will see me. Not, my colour, not, my flaws, not, my clothes, not, my value, and not, my status. When, you open your heart, your eyes will see, exactly the same heart that I see in you. Your heart, will see the uniqueness, from a love point of view. Your heart, will see, we are all one, not two. We can all see clearly, when, we look from the hearts point of view. The lens is as clear, as clear can be, there is no colour, there's only love for you, and for me. For the heart does not see, anything but, love, from the lens, of an open heart, and the perspective, of me. It matters what your heart sees, because, the person who died saying, “I CAN’T BREATHE,” he mattered and he had a heart as, unique, as, you, and me. George Floyd’s Heart Mattered! Black Lives Matter! People Matter! Stand up, and open your heart because, it matters what your heart sees! ❤️© Wendy Comeau

Facebook asks me what is on my mind. Well I lost my mind a few weeks ago. I found the perfect song to match my thoughts at this time.
The song is CRAZY by Gnarls Barkley. 31,048,325 Views. Shows me where the world is at.
Besides working at remaining sane. I am re-reading Ann Birch's book. Duelling in a New World. She has a character in her booked name Marianne.
Interesting how a book (a real book, by amazing Canadian authors) touches me, as I have met the brilliant author.
Take care be kind to one another and wear a mask.
Thank-you Maurus for spending a very long time on my cordless phone with me , helping me to understand Zoom, and how to get on WEN's
Facebook. Be safe, we are all in this together.

Just in case some of you did not receive our latest newsletter, I wanted to remind everyone that there is no WEN breakfast
Meeting at Canadiana on Saturday May 16. Restaurants in Toronto are still closed. We cannot resume WEN breakfast meetings until Canadiana opens.
The WEN board is meeting via Zoom this Saturday morning, May 16. Depending on the success of the virtual board meeting, we are contemplating having a virtual WEN meeting for the general membership using Zoom or Facebook messenger room (a new feature that has just been released). The idea here is to hold our next Members Readings scheduled for July via Zoom or Facebook. Will keep you posted.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, our April 18, 2020 breakfast meeting at Canadiana is now cancelled. We contacted our guest speaker and she is willing to speak to us in the Fall.

Please continue to stay safe and reach out to fellow WEN members who may be isolated. We pray that we can meet again in May but this date is also uncertain at this time.

I thought you might enjoy this this wartime song by Vera Lynn.

When Tomorrow Starts~Wendy Comeau

When tomorrow starts with out me, remember you found freedom.
When tomorrow starts without me, remember what you took with you.
When tomorrow starts without me, remember that your shoulders are lighter.
When tomorrow starts without me, remember that there is no power
greater than your imagination.
When tomorrow starts without me,
remember that your power was not connected to your materials.
When tomorrow starts without me,
remember that courage, that strength,
that faith, that trust, that tenacity, for a challenge.
When tomorrow starts without me, remember, that the sun, will shine again
in the morning, nothing was lost.
When tomorrow starts without me,
remember that your love was not what you lost.
When tomorrow starts without me, remember that tomorrow is a new day.
When tomorrow starts without me, remember you, remember me, remember
us, remember you, are a heart of kindness.
When tomorrow starts without me, remember love, everything, needs love
in the world.
When tomorrow starts without me,
remember there can always be a new day,
a new tomorrow, and a new beginning. I was only money, I was only your illusion of love.~ © Wendy Comeau❤️ #tomorrow #material #people #beginning #remember #love #kindness #new #day #starts #without #me #you #us #money #love #illusion #trust #faith #strength #courage #tenacity #world #universe #❤️#aheartofkindness

After careful deliberations, the WEN Board has decided to cancel the next Breakfast Meeting on Saturday, March 21st due to concerns over COVID-19. We have contacted Canadiana who support our decision. In addition, our guest speaker, Kevin Donovan is willing to be one of our guest speakers in the Fall.

This is the prudent thing to do since we have many elderly members and because many other clubs are also cancelling their meetings. Stay safe and we hope we can reconvene in April.
