Social Distancing – it’s not a bad thing
I have gone a week without talking to anyone. That wasn’t something I did lightly. it wasn’t forced or required, it was something I needed to do for me. I put myself in self-isolation. The funny thing is so many of us artists call it a sabbatical.
My husband at the time was deployed, and the kids went to my in-laws for a whole week. I called my parents and told them I wouldn’t be answering the phone for the next several days, I told them I wasn’t upset or anything, I just needed a break from people. I had prepared meals so I didn’t have to worry or consider what to eat, I had all my paint supplies – essentially I geared up for me time.
Now it is like the whole world is experiencing this me time, a sabbatical of sorts.
You are in a unique time in history, one where you get to stay within your 4 walls and reconnect with what is your sanctuary, your home, and your family and yourself. That is what comes from isolation – you have time to reflect, time to care for what you have rather than pursuing what you don’t have. So what are you doing with your time?
