Where do you want to go?

I based this illustration on a phrase Bethany Simons said in a podcast about the quarantine. I believe each one of us has had a different experience. We're all lost and waiting, and our only "north" is to stay at home. But we should be aware that every person has faced different challenges, and has managed it the way they could.
While needing to stay at home I decided to spend time doing what I love, finishing projects and taking care of myself. Grateful.
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.
My crazy-covid days have been swinging wildly between chaos and order. This whimsy illustration shows a typical day in my current life - and sometimes I don't even realise the day I am on!
I have ended up with new routines and a newer meaning to my mantra 'one day at a time!' But I am so thankful I have my time to draw and create - that's my happy space where I connect, explore and discover something new every day.
Thanks TDAT for this wonderful prompt to map my moment - I think I am going to frame my own art and recall this strange time and say 'Yay! I survived!' :)
