I hope whoever is reading this is well during these unprecendented times.

Please take care of yourself, both mentally and physically.  

Myself, I was completely unprepared for how isolation and restrictions would affect me.  At first, it seemed like an artist's dream: imagine, having to stay at home and being able to paint all day!  Yeah, ... that's not what happened!  Covid sucked the life out of my creativity.  Not much has been happening in the studio up until now but the urge to paint is coming back slowly.

My focus these days is on participating in The Great Virtual Race Across Tennessee - 1000 km from May 1 - August 31.  I'm a very slow walker/runner, so it takes 2-3 hours a day to get my target distances in.
I've also rediscovered the therapeutic benefits of doing puzzles.  I'm not a great one for talking on the phone, but it's easier when doing a puzzle, lol.

My hope for all of you is that you're able to do what you have to do to feed your soul and calm your minds as we weather through this.  Stay strong, stay healthy, appreciate the little things that matter, and try not to stress about the ones that don't.
