I personally found more positive things in the state of isolation, such as: taking a break from my long travelings, which have not been a break for the last year and a half. To be alone with my inner self, to clear various thoughts in my head. I also finally found the time I never had enough to start creating in another way like making music, writing, and dancing. It also freed up time for things I don't like to do, but I had no choice, cleaning out old things I didn't need but didn't notice from in my normal daily routine. And separately I have even more time for my professions, my hobbies and time to call all my friends from all over the world and talk until dawn without worries that tomorrow we have to get up early for work or do something outside.

When quarantine started because of COVID-19, I decided to spend this time doing things I couldn't do very much until then.
Even in this situation, there are many things I can do in and around the house, and I was able to notice the small happiness in my life.
It was very encouraging to see how people all over the world were spending this time through their unique drawings.
Thank you so much for such a wonderful project!
During the quarantine, my kitchen table has become a gathering place for all of the things that are a part of my new daily routine.
With most of the tourist areas and beaches closed and a restriction on travel during the lockdown period in Cyprus, my family and I were only able to exercise outside within a limited distance from our home. As a consequence, we discovered some beautiful areas close to our flat that we had previously had no idea existed.
My entry for Mapping this Moment—a little comic documenting these strange times.
This is our walk route which is a little over 3 miles. It was a coping ritual that is now habit. We see gopher turtles, plumeria trees blooming, egrets, herons, ibis, spoonbills, wood storks, singing frogs and alligators, who is our friendly neighborhood map monster. We moved to Florida back in November and we love it here!
