Here’s a drawing done in July 2020 about an event that happened in June 2020.
We had a very destructive windstorm, frightening, and causing widespread damage, and our power was out for several days. We spent one night in a hotel. It was a nervous time – we had been on lockdown for the pandemic for almost 90 days at this point and what might have been a run-of-the-mill thing to do in past times was full of anxiety for us, but we needed to be out of the house.
The hotel experience was stress-free once we got there – it was a brand-new hotel and the room was lovely, with a little kitchen and comfortable sofa. It turned out to be very helpful to our mental health.
So, here is a drawing that looks very ordinary but represents a lot of emotions. I was very grateful for being able to take refuge here.
