One year later

It is March 2021. Each time I look at the calendar this week, I can’t help but think about last March and how the novel coronavirus unfolded worldwide: symptoms, travel bans, asymptomatic carriers, masks, ICU capacity, case and death counts. It’s been an incredibly challenging year.

I have also been thinking about where I was a year ago. Exactly one year ago today, I was debating whether or not to get on a plane to fly to visit friends across the country in Washington, DC, and then to proceed on to New York City for a wedding on March 15.

In the remembering, I decided I wanted to reflect on this experience, and to do so using my pandemic skill: making stop motion movies. I’m delighted to present my longest film yet, “COVID Unfolding: A Love Story.”

Please give it a watch!

And good luck this March. Grief anniversaries are hard, and this month will be full of them. I hope the pandemic skills you learned along the way – baking bread, taking long walks, unmuting yourself on Zoom – will offer some comfort. We’re still in this together.
