REVERSING THE QUARANTINE:
COMMUNITY CREATIVITY & PLAY:
Going stir crazy, even though your self-quarantine has only lasted 5 minutes and normally you would have spent all day, or all weekend, alone, reading, writing, watching netflix, painting, drawing, emailing or playing video games anyway?
There is something about the obligation not to go to the movies, theater, shopping, etc that makes us want to go. But no, can't, so... I suggest we all find ways to leap into the dialogue. To not go stir crazy, to not over obsess. To not lose hope.
Starting today and hopefully soon including LOTS of other authors, I have created the blog SELF QUARANTINE LINES which are, in fact:
"Lines in a Time of Quarantine"
In short,15 authors, to start, on this, the 15th of March 2020, have been invited to "join" and to begin posting. With their help and suggestions of others, in the coming week we will hopefully get the number of official authors up to the blogger maximum.
BUT check out the comments options: YOU, too, if not on this year or not sure you want to be, can post poems, fragments, mini stories, or whatever onto the posts that appear in the coming days and weeks.
I am hoping this will be a way to keep up the morale, the dialogue, the livliness of expression not only in one voice, but across voices, places, and time zones in these, our quarantine times. https://selfquarantinelines.blogspot.com/
