Stories of Social Distancing 2: Marlene Creates

During this temporary postponement of FIA residencies and programs, we have invited former artists-in-residence to submit texts, images, stories and thoughts exploring how they are affected by the COVID-19 pandemic; how their daily life or community has been disrupted; how they are dealing with isolation and the concept of social distancing; as well as how they are looking ahead to healthier and undoubtably transformed times. Thanks to all who have contributed to this ongoing series and stay safe.

My contribution to Stories of Social Distancing is a photograph I took of clouds over the boreal forest where I live in Portugal Cove, Newfoundland.  
 
“One way to open your eyes to unnoticed beauty is to ask yourself, ‘What if I had never seen this before? What if I knew I would never see it again?’” From The Sense of Wonder by Rachel Carson.  
 
We can look at just about anything and try out this idea.  I find it works especially well with a cloud.  I try to go outside and look up at the sky at least once every day, often at night.  For city dwellers, the sky is the last true wilderness.
