I know that this pandemic has so many of us at our limits. Those of us with mental health issues prior to the crisis have now been struggling to keep their head above the water. And many of us who didn’t experience these issues before are grappling with them now.
More than ever the creative arts offers solace and respite in ways nothing else can provide, right? Whether you create it or consume it, I’m so glad you’re here. Stick with me and hang in there. I know I’ve been in a writer’s slump for awhile now and that it happens to everyone now and then. That’s the entire point of the writing prompts I post here; to offer help to pull out of it. But none of us have ever really been through something quite like this, have we? It can be overwhelming.
Whatever way in that you’re managing this, and I know some people out there are saying it’s over now while others are still self-isolating, just know that you’re not alone. The fact that you’re here, reading this post and visiting my blog, tells me this. You’re not alone. I’m not alone. We’re all here and I’m so grateful for that.
I’ve always said that life is chaos, but I never expected it to be like this. I don’t think there is anything that could have prepared me for it. So again, thank you for being here. Thank you for creating and experiencing the art in this world. However small you may feel, you are a big reason the world is a brighter place. All because you seek that light. So thank you for being you.
I’d like to take a moment to give a special shout out and thanks to my subscribers on Patreon, Trevor Brannigan and Marshall Nash. It’s the support from people like you that helps to keep this blog running and ad free.
