We goofed yesterday. My husband had two colleagues over to work on some research. We thought that with a little care it would be fine to work outside in the fresh air. I made them coffee and brownies. They talked and argued. I sketched. It was a good afternoon.
But, after receiving some advice and projections from a normally laidback friend who is also a virologist and an immunologist, we won’t do that again until the rate of transmission declines. This virus has terrible potential. Everyone, and especially people our age, needs to stay as far from the virus as we possibly can.
We are staying put for the duration and are grateful to have each other and the safety of our home. I tried to capture this feeling of both resignation and togetherness in this sketch.
