Share photos of “life now” for possible publication in The Newtown Bee; submit photos and descriptions of your life, whether home or abroad. Submissions will run as space allows in an upcoming edition.

This will be an ongoing featured item in the pages of The Newtown Bee. The newspaper has been chronicling town happenings since 1877, and, with the help of residents, we hope to capture today’s changing world through these submitted images.

The deadline to submit photos for each week’s paper is Wednesday at noon. To submit a photo, e-mail the image to reporter Eliza Hallabeck, eliza@thebee.com, with a brief description, including the names of those pictured.

‘Living My Best Life’

Newtown resident Danielle Watt Justus, who submitted a recent photo of her taken at the Neurovation Center in Sandy Hook, shared that the center has helped her face the COVID-19 pandemic. After being about halfway through her sessions, Justus said in an e-mail that she experienced great relief.

“I’m less anxious and less depressed... My sense of well-being has improved. After trying many therapies, this approach is the most significant change I’ve experienced.” She is “living my best life” now, she says.

A ‘Newly Adopted Baby’

Christine O’Neill, who works in the planning department at Newtown Municipal Center, shared a recent photo of Gwendolyn, her cat.

“Since [COVID-19] started, I’ve been spending a lot more time at my computer,” O’Neill wrote in an e-mail. “Consequently, I’ve moved Gwendolyn’s bed next to the screen so that I can give her chin-scratches in between Zooms!” O’Neill added that she is happy to “show off my newly adopted baby.”
