Since March 2020, I often felt like the thin paper ship I was on was sinking quickly as every normal aspect of my daily routine was changed. When vaccines were beginning to be approved in 2021, I starter to feel like there was a light at the end of this mess. The animation is titled “Pandemic Hope”.
I’m not sure that this series belongs because it feels wrong to place it on a website about blessings. The COVID 19 pandemic in large is no way a blessing. But as we ease out of the pandemic I am trying to reflect on some positive lessons learned during this time. Lessons surrounding the fragility of life, importance of rest and family time, that there is no substitute for face-to-face communication, the absolute gift for the soul that a hike in nature can provide, the perspective that quality reflection time and worship can bring, and my own awareness on how much I need a routine in my own life. If the world turns off again, I’ll be armed with my new coping skills.
