A Poem for you

A poem for you picked by the Wheelers

Someone I loved once gave me
a box full of darkness.
It took me years to understand
that this, too, was a gift.

The Uses of Sorrow by Mary Oliver

Like everyone else, the team at Catherine Wheels are at home.
Like everyone else, we had plans that had to be changed. We were playing and making and touring, but that had to stop.
Like everyone else we are sad not to be out in the world sharing our shows and connecting with others.


This is a time to pause and reflect on what is important.
This is a time to make sure that family and friends and colleagues are well
This is a time to do all you can to reach out and support others
This is a time to be kind and caring and wise
This is a time when our world becomes small but our heart becomes BIG

If you’ve got an idea, or think we might be able to help each other, drop us a line. We’ll be connecting, and we’ll be creating – in different ways.

Love and Solidarity from the Wheelers – Gill, Louise, Tony, Helen and Emma xx
