Here’s a comic that applies to COVID life as much as my first intent. I originally drew this comic to illustrate my distractible and forgetful behavior while recovering from several concussions. It was particularly hard to follow through on something when I forgot about it as soon as it was out of my sight.
At the beginning of the pandemic, I found myself distracted and forgetful again. Days and then weeks passed and I couldn’t seem to accomplish anything. It was the natural result of the heightened anxiety, stress and fear I think many of us were feeling, and still feel at times. Our daily lives have changed and there is so much uncertainty in the world right now.
Instead of slowly being able to expand my life as I heal, I am again home much of the day. Part of that is COVID – public spaces like libraries, coffee houses, or museums are simply not available. The other part is my new climate, where the summer humidity and heat make it impossible for me to casually spend time outside between 9 am and 7 pm.
I hope you enjoy this comic! I ran out of steam before I finalized it in pen, but the story is clear. Blessed be.
