I have never witnessed anything like this in 66 years~
I painted this flattering self~ portrait..I say flattering because I am not wearing my 18 winter layers and slippers..and it's from the back..just about 1 day before things started going haywire here.
As of now..our Prime Minister's wife,Sophie Grégoire ~Trudeau has the virus.
All schools are shut for at least 2 weeks.
Events gathering too many people are canceled.
Sporting events canceled.
Store shelves bare of certain necessities.
The stock market is ..you know..
Our parliament is closed until end of April.
The government.. will continue..but by phone..and web..
It's all so much and so frightening for many.
It's easy for us to say relax..but I did wake up several times..really concerned.
My What If middle name is overactive.
I really never sleep well in the best of times..so..
I think of the health of everyone..businesses..
The economic outcome seems grim.
That's not me predicting this.
In the last 10 yrs I have seen that many people are alone.
What of them?
Who can they find comfort with?
In a way the internet and social media will be a blessing for house bound people..
It certainly made the news spread soo fast.
The bad jokes..the shocking photos..
The jokes in poor taste..are the worst.
How people can find humor in all this is really beyond me.
I have often mentioned it's good to develop a HOME hobby..I hope you do.
Now is the time to be grateful for reading..knitting..painting..writing..etc..
I have to see a doctor next week..I told my husband to stay home.
I will go alone.
We are being well informed here in QC..
I tried painting yesterday and it was just awful.I'll re-apply myself later today I think.I have to be inspired...
I am hoping that sometime in 2020..all will be well.
In more ways than one.
