Good morning Wonderers.
It has been awhile since you heard from me but there is a need for everyone to document what is happening in the world today. It does not matter if you are a writer, artist, songwriter or novice of some sort. There is no age requirement either. Just document what you see, hear, or think is important in your own way.
Today I chose to express my thoughts in a quilt top. I will try to explain it to you in hopes you will get a better understanding of my thought process.
The top part represents healthy people in the world. The bright colors and patterns are to express all of our social activities.
The green spacing is our world – earth. Notice the spacing between each area. It represents the social distancing.
The next blocks of faded color represent even though social distances was enacted people still got sick. Maybe because the proper medical supplies were not here, 😷 or maybe because we could not stop socializing like we were asked to do.
The one block with the ink pen represents the President of the United States had the authority to order whatever was necessary to help stop the spread.
The grey area with the dots represents the many opportunities that was lost in our ability to slow down the viral curve. We all are responsible in some way.
The black and white flowers which are mostly upside down represents death. Thank you to the many people who sacrificed their lives in helping to stop the virus. In whatever capacity, may you always be remembered with gratitude. Rest In Peace.
The monkeys on the bars represent the few representatives of the people that delayed the response to the virus but also are trying to help in the recovery of the nation. It is a testament of how difficult it is to do the right thing sometimes.
How will you document what is happening in the world today?
Please do not judge my response to our current predicament. It is just me trying to make sense of it all. Whether I am right or wrong does not matter. The only thing that does matter is “In God we trust.”
As always thanks for perusing and have a wonderful day.
