....to collect, curate compile views from different windows onto this same coronavirus crisis. I think it's fair to say "crisis."
My hope is share small accounts of small moments over the course of the next few weeks (months?), updating this blog once or twice a week, sharing accounts of friends and strangers who are living this surreal time of lockdowns, and self isolations, life, death, boredom, fear, uncertainty
