Science helps us discover the tools to better enable life. The Arts help us discover who we are and enables us to connect with each other. Going through a pandemic that forces us into a point of isolation, is changing our sociology in so many ways. When was the last time you shook someone’s hand, or gave a hug or even said hi?
We are isolated behind mask, taken to task and left imprisoned by the unknown. Some are rebelling, all our lives are telling and in the silence of our days, are we failing? There however is opportunity, for each of us to find commonality, and painting the stories of our days.
From pens, pencils and brushes, to ink, paint and paper, capturing the stories of our days, has not been taken from us. So while scientist are at work, let’s take to our own words, and write across the pages, or extend our brushes on open spaces.
I draw on my words
to say what I see
and fill the space
with that I feel
to share the story
of life revealed
and shed light on
the journeys revealed.
