Beating the Stir-crazy
This month I had my first solo poetry and journaling events scheduled to promote my upcoming book, Athena. However, like many others, I have canceled my events with a heavy heart and public health in mind. It's no secret that the Coronavirus, COVID-19, has been interrupting the world as we all know it. While positive cases are on the rise so is anxiety and uncertainty. Many of us are left with not much to do but try and maintain some sense of normalcy while becoming buried in our thoughts. As someone who has learned to channel much of my anxiety into my writing, now seems like the perfect time to try and help some of you do the same.
