Here we all are...Stuck.
Or..maybe Not Stuck at All!
In times of change, we adapt - and if we are fortunate to feel healthy, it can be a welcome challenge. What are all the things we 'just have to do' but had not the time to do them? Suddenly, the time is there.
Best ways to enjoy it? I know there is a lot out there, now, going around about this topic so maybe it is not unique at all. But to me, that is kind of the beauty of it. What I'm seeing is people connecting in new ways, creating in new ways, and doing things like gardening, cooking, reading, playing music...and even making art in new ways.
For myself, it's been a chance to compose and post a new YouTube video about an art show. I'd been looking forward to the new exhibit and reception at a gallery in the area when suddenly, the Covid-19 made that not possible. No reception, gallery closed (temporarily, as were most, initially) and all work hung! I usually send an email to subscribers to let them know updates, and had it all set to send, as always, including pictures, of course. But then I had an idea...Hey, I said to myself, how about a 'virtual tour' of the exhibit, instead of the usual static images. So...
A pretty big learning curve, even thought I'd done a YouTube video before (ok, it was back in 2013, on color consulting, and is still on YouTube), it was with different tools. After a fairly stressful time, I finally said Ok it just has to be done now. So I posted it.
One huge and very gratifying task completed. I look forward to doing more, and now have some ideas about going forward with that process also. That's just one thing, so far, from the creative side of being...Stuck.
What's your experience? Please share your thoughts, I look forward to hearing from you!
