Enjoy a brief interval of relief, delivered directly to your inbox every morning.

With Purell selling online for hundreds of bucks and infection counts increasing by the day, it’s hard not to get caught up in the collective anxiety around COVID-19. Anxiety does nothing good for our souls, much less our immune systems. I know I’m feeling it.

So I’ve decided to do a little experiment.

I am Clara Parkes, an author, speaker, and story seeker. And starting next week, every morning I’ll email a little nugget to enjoy as you start your day. A short video clip, a piece of music, a poem, an idea. Who knows, I might even read to you or take you on a walk with me? We’ll see. As I said, it’s an experiment.

The Daily Respite is exactly what it suggests: a brief interval of relief. A momentary distraction for our busy brains. A reminder of the joy that exists all around us, even in scary times.

If you know others who might enjoy a daily respite, by all means tell your friends!

See you soon,
