It feels like the world has turned upside down over these past few weeks. New words have entered our vocabulary- corona virus, Covid-19 and social distancing. Our common everyday dust mask the N95 has turned into a scarce commodity. We can not hug and visit with our friends and family. It feels like our world is standing still. It all feels overwhelming and uncertain.
There are, however, a couple of things I know for sure. Those of us who own small businesses have an inward drive that keeps us working, creating and readjusting. For many of us who make things for a living we feel compelled to use our hands and minds to create things. Even when there is not a financial incentive.
Tom and I are trying to keep on our schedule. We still set our alarm for 6:30. We find exercising helps calm us. We still go to our studio. We are the only ones there so social distancing is not a problem. Staying focused and motivated is a challenge. We are grateful everyday for all we have.
We would love to know what your day looks like. What are you doing to add joy to your life?
Send us an email or comment on this blog post We truly would love to hear how you are doing.
Be healthy-stay safe

Great post Mary. We’re trying to stay busy as well. Creating art is what we do and now is as good a time as any to create.
