…and any extreme situation we might find ourselves in, for that matter
As individuals we often find ourselves having to face many kinds of extreme situations–man-made or nature-made. Oftentimes, these extreme situations change our lives and our views on life.
So, how about today, in a time of Coronavirus?
COVID-19 has forced many of us–on a collective and individual level–to pause, to take time out. In particular, on an individual level, the virus has given many of us the courage to use this time for self-reflection, for reassessing priorities in our lives and our work.
On the other hand and, again, as it often happens in these kinds of extreme situations, as creatives, we might also find inspiration in the Coronavirus pandemic. We might find a sense of duty and a desire to capture it, as we see it, as we experience it, and as it affects our lives and the lives of our loved ones. In the process, our individual stories may become part of a collective story documenting the Coronavirus pandemic for posterity. While the Covid-19 story has just started to unfold, I wonder what would it say, in the end, about this particular pandemic, and about us, facing this pandemic?
I hope this finds you all well. Stay safe and healthy out there, and, as always, thanks for stopping by!
