This week I noticed that it’s easier to stay in the present, because there’s no future to think about. Not that there isn’t a future, but we don’t know what the future will be like, and we therefore can’t make future plans. It’s ironic that it took a pandemic and global shutdown to teach me to be in the present moment!
It’s difficult to deal with so much uncertainty, isn’t it? I can see now that things won’t be going back to “normal” any time soon, — perhaps never. This could be a good thing, or maybe not. Who knows? How are you handling the uncertainty? Is it exciting? Anxiety provoking?
The other day I had a small epiphany. I realized that the most important thing for my well-being, above all else, is that I have fun and enjoy whatever it is that I’m doing.
So to that end, I had some fun this week creating three new collages with a humorous twist. I’m especially fond of the first one. It was very fun to choose who would populate my Zoom room! Click on the images to see them larger in a browser.
“The New Normal,” 16 x 20 inches, mixed media on canvas panel
“Netflix Binge,” 16 x 20 inches, mixed media on canvas panel
“Seismic Shift,” 16 x 20 inches, mixed media on canvas panel
I hope you’re doing well and finding opportunities for fun.
Who would you choose to be in your Zoom room? I’d enjoy hearing your thoughts. You can share them with us in the comments section below.
With love and appreciation,
