Learning by Heart
"Learning by Heart" was made for the Heart of Resilience Show at Vashon Center for the Arts Gallery this month. It is an original digital print Ltd 1/12. The show asks what are artists making in the time of COVID 19 and how do we stay creative in the face of the epidemic?
Much of how we survive is learning to endure. How we endure is learned by heart. Habits sustain us. Perhaps the best advice I received from my parents when facing uncertainty was about maintaining a schedule and establishing a routine. Bathe, dress, what now, what next, get back into the saddle. Ride this thing out.
