Happy Holiday in a Zoom world

Such a strange time to be alive in the world.
After class tonight, partially on Zoom, I thought
about how much we long to get out of these
computer boxes, and to see one another.  The
urge is overwhelming, and yet where it's
happening too fast things are rolling back,
and restrictions are increasing.

In any summer before COVID, I would be with
friends or family on this holiday. We would be
travelling to see my brother.  But none of that makes 
sense.  So on the upside, we can see one another in the
lense of a computer, or phone camera.  My
drawing is about how this doesn't tell the
whole story.  I miss my sister.  It was a 
friend's birthday today.  I miss my brother. I miss
my children.

Happy holiday.
