Update March 31, 2020 | amygreenberg925 How are you all doing? I want to extend my well wishes and best thought to everyone as we deal with this new normal. I am working from home and doing my best to stay calm and hopeful.I thought that being home would give me the energy to do my artwork morning, noon and night. Maybe it is because I am still operating in survival mode, grief, uncertainty, anxiety, what have you…I am just having a hard time focusing on art. It is the activity that grounds me, but I have to admit, I am just not fully there yet.It is no surprise that the Open Studios event has been either canceled or postponed – we are still waiting to hear what is next. It seems frivolous to mourn such losses – an art show, an open studio, my daughter’s prom, perhaps – upcoming graduation ceremonies. It seems such a small inconvenience compared to those losing a loved one or struggling to care for those sick with this disease. Yet, I do know that these are my experiences of loss. So, here are the things that I am doing to have healthy management of this new norm – less news watching; unfollowing people to spread misinformation, more connection to those I love and respect. What are you doing to take care of yourself? Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading...
One thought on “Update”
I have felt as you have- grief at small losses that build on each other. I feel grateful for being in so much better shape than so many others and yet there is still grief and fear. Like you I turn to art, but I’m not able to focus yet. I hope and keep busy.
