JSP Visual Week In Review ~ 03.21.20
That week felt like it took about three months, didn’t it?
I don’t need to tell you these are unprecedented times.
Honestly, it’s like a science-fiction film.
And to think we’re all experiencing this – all of us visiting this blog – are going through some form of upheaval and unease.
I check my stats. I see where visitors come from.
Mostly the US, yes, but the UK, Spain, India, Canada, Italy, France, Paraguay, China, Romania, Serbia, UAE.
94 countries in all in the first three months of 2020
It’s a new world order though. Many of us are under curfew. My kids are learning remotely until at least April 20. My wife’s personal training business is on hold. I’m working from home (though I’ve done that for almost three years now.)
And yet, Spring is bursting forth.
We are all in this together.
And we’re all here for each other.
Need me to post more to take your mind off of things? I’ll do it.
Want more creative inspiration? More BTS shots? Books to read? Music to listen to? Films to watch?
Let me know in the comments below or email me.
Over on my IG, I’m highlighting some of the musicians I’ve photographed now affected by all this. Click my IG link, and my LinkTree below find out more about them.
It’s crazy times.
We’re all in this together.
And we’ll come out the other side of this.
