Her name is Maureen. No, it is not. We love her, though, and at the age of 92, Maureen’s mind wanders through time and space, through real and imaginary stories. The same stories change all the time. We put it aside and we kiss her cheek. She probably doesn’t know who we are. Old age, dementia and the desire to honour another beautiful life. We love Maureen.
My neighbours are at the same time close and yet far away – everybody stays at home and tries to find pleasure in activities that are usually more fun together, like making music, doing yoga, baking cakes for a birthday invitation and travelling – which has been replaced by dreaming of places. Hopefully everything will be well soon. (I put the phrase in Italian on the map since it became famous when Italy was hit hard by the virus in March).
Mapping This Moment: Quarantine 2020 - public school art teacher, teaching from home by Nancy HelmsworthPortland, OR, US
Quarantine 2020 - has been a wild and frightening experience but I am lucky to be able to continue to work and have loved learning how to teach online and exploring my neighborhood on foot. Walking rain or shine and hey- it's Oregon, so RAIN is more likely - BUT to my delight - SPRING flowers are so beautiful this year - really over-the-top. So that has been a joy, to see Nature be strong and resilient.
We all are facing same situation, entire world is living same life. Rather it's India or Italy, New York or Singapore there is one thing common which is hope. In this lockdown period when I look outside I find different people in the balcony. They are attractive, hopeful and looking forward to have a better tomorrow.
It's set in a video game where you earn points by collecting objects and defeating monsters, and to win you need to reach your virus-free home.
Working from isolation has definitely changed the way I use technology in a big way. Before, my day revolved around my students, the bells, my classes. Now it seems (almost) everything I do is connected to a different piece of technology. I wake up, eat, teach, work out, plan, and talk to others with a different device. But in the middle of my day, if I'm lucky, I get a little time to disconnect, unwind, and relax.
An ode to all the graduates of 2020 who aren't able to have a traditional ceremony due to covid-19. This piece depicts the importance of technology during this time from zoom to emails to texts and shows how we are able to stay connected despite not being able to be physically together.
We were wearing down the treads of our shoes and psyches from walking in our neighborhood. A recent social media post about a labyrinth from a friend forced us to change - or escape - our scenery. We took our shoes and our psyches on a trek to find the mythical labyrinth. We found it on our third trip to the park. Three is a charm.
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!' :)
