ArtSpring’s Staff Submissions

From Meghan – “Although this time has been strange for me, much of it has also been wonderful (hard to reconcile this when so many are suffering). It’s been challenging having both parents working from home while minding two active children, but I’ve discovered I truly am a homebody,happiest home with my family, exploring nature.

Weekdays are a whirlwind of working, gardening, housekeeping and childminding, complete with virtual meetings, online school learning and video check-ins with friends and family. Weekends take us to new island trails and beaches we may never have discovered were it not for this pandemic. Some days feel like I’m living in a futuristic virtual reality with life lived on a screen, while other days feel more like it’s 1820 – my hands in the soil, bread dough rising in front of the fire, noticing every detail of the changing season. What a world!

For wildlife lovers, my son’s virtual schooling led us to an awesome website to view a variety of animals real time via live cams from around the world. Watch now

Also, here’s a fun take on a pat-a-cake song (sent by my son’s devoted music teacher) that I’ve enjoyed many times with the kids. There’s nothing like beautiful a cappella harmonies and lively rhythm to pick us up when we’re feeling down.” Listen now
