We all are feeling a loss - we need our ringing community and all the pleasure and purpose handbell and handchime activities offer. At present we are unable to meet and greet one another. Perhaps there are creative online ways to continue our important connection. Although the sound of bells is currently on hold (unless you're a solo ringer), our groups can still gather on Zoom (or another video conferencing) to meet, to greet, to connect. Set up a video of a performance group to watch together. Share stories of ringing experiences. Tell each other what's going on with you and your family. Even without ringing we all need to stick together and be supportive of one another.
I wish you well and send loving thoughts during this difficult time. Susan Berry
