Most of the country and world has experience some sort of quarantine in the past few months. How have you done with it all? I am trying to immerse myself into my art and my music. I can always paint, but my music has been a challenge! I play the french horn in a community band, and two orchestras (OSU-Corvallis Symphony and the Willamette Valley Symphony). While painting is a very quiet experience where you are working by yourself, music is better experienced with a group (in my opinion). You practice your part and others practice theirs, and then, voila! it all comes together! The pieces finally fit, like a puzzle. I ache for that feeling again. It could be awhile before I get to experience that. I am practicing at home and have participated in some virtual groups. But it isn't the same. I am so grateful that I have my art! I am a nurse by profession. If you happen to be reading this and need someone to listen, I will be there for you. My purpose in life is to help others--and hopefully cheer people up through my art. Let's work together to make this world a better place!
