    Allo Allo all... I wanted to post a few things I have learned about being in isolation.
    1. One pack of Oreos between two people teaches you the art of sharing.
    2. All of those old board games and puzzles become a way to reconnect with your inner child and partner.
    3. When you have a bird feeder and there's squirrels around, it's damned hilarious to watch the squirrels.
    4. Gardening is a great way to get dirty.
    5. Who needs a restaurant when you relearn your kitchen?
    6. You wonder when did TV become your life after you read a book and rediscover the printed word.
    7. You discover your partner/SO is really a great person or you hate them.
    8. When you are doing a project and you make a fool of yourself, it's okay to laugh.
    9. You find out just much you really need to listen to someone to connect with them.
    And lastly....
    10. You rediscover an old hobby and you fall back in love with it.

    I haven't done art for years and I graduated as an artist. Quite shameful... It feels like I'm a total anti-artist, because not even in my lonely quarantine I want to make art.

    Hope you people will create some great art!

    I learned to value health and my whole being. We have a lot of time to connect with our creator.
