Description

Here in California, we’re heading into our third week of a “shelter in place” mandate to help stem the spread of the unprecedented global pandemic of deadly COVID-19. Laying low at home in Sacramento, we are all adapting to a new normal of venturing out only of necessity that wasn’t conceived of just a short time ago. I admittedly find myself struggling, like so many others, with the psychological effects of constriction. But, I am slowly coming to the realization that gratitude is the very root of creative expression, and constraint can lead to greater self-reflection and appreciation of the mundane to express yourself creatively. I couldn’t help this morning but get up before sunrise to a remote oak tree that my husband and I discovered together during the course of this pandemic for a beautiful sunrise to reinvigorate the soul.
