Dear CPSFI friends/partners/athletes/players
Greetings from CPSFI.
We are living in unprecedented times. As all of us around the globe self-isolate into quietude, we are reminded of humanity’s interconnectivity.
The present time is a trying time, and our hearts go out to everyone affected. Yet, we have the opportunity to focus on the positive, as the Earth readjusts, to a more sustainable existence.
We are all going back to our roots, to our friends and loved ones and on an inner journey to reconnect with life’s simplicities that sometimes pass us by.
