Hello Phone

Written by Alma Claire / Art by Jeanelle Van Der Merwe and Alex Antonioni

little screen,

sweet denial,

let me live inside you for a while,

let me leave the world outside,

let me find a place in the pixels to hide.

 

blue light,

insomnia nights,

let me numb away the pain of the day,

let me scroll until i feel ok,

let me pretend i know the way.

 

hello phone,

virtual home,

let me escape my one precious life,

let me fall in love with a thousand likes,

let me live eyes down and heart shut tight.

 

little screen, 

sweet denial,

i think i’ll stay for a little longer,

maybe just until i feel stronger…

 

let me escape.

Health. A simple word and lies beneath it an ocean of knowledge, tools and understandings. From western medicine to traditional healings and everything in-between... sometimes, the breadth of health can be overwhelming. So in 2018 we made it our mission to create an online boat that would navigate through the sea of health and along the way, put forward resources and information that would help young people BE HALE. Hale stands for healthy, whole, strong and safe. It is our Captains' mission to sail you, our community and team to optimal hale-ness. We welcome you aboard and hope you enjoy your ride. To find out more about what we do, visit our ABOUT page. With Love, Your Captain Hale x
