These Tough Times

 

The beginning of March 2020 brought great change to everyone

HOW ARE YOU DOING? Everyone is affected. Everyone is finding a new way. There are so many layers, so many directions to those new ways. I'm finding my way drawing digital portraits of people's pets. I'm helping a couple of cat rescues with fundraisers, and I'm posting more video of myself drawing pets on paper with black marker and color sticks. It gives me focus and a break from the reality of what's going on around us. I draw instead of worry. That doesn't mean I don't worry, but I give myself something to do that I feel good about. I suppose it's a way to feel some control in an uncontrollable situation. I hope you all are finding the same, discovering new things about yourself and what you can do. Never have we had so much time to think about what we're doing in this life. It's uneasy and exhilarating all at the same time. And because it's right in front of us, we have to face it. We're stuck for a while, but it doesn't mean we have to be stuck without moving forward.
