First Person Arts - COVID Stories: "Just Breath"As we watch spring erupt around us and hear birds chirping, in some cases, for the first time in years. As the streets are quieted from the steady thrum of car and pedestrian traffic, one's mind is freed to ponder other things. This week's stories are about how the pandemic has impacted careers. It has allowed some people to refocus and others to use their talents at home. People all over the world are experiencing an unprecedented health crisis - a viral pandemic that is isolating people and communities in a world that already felt divided. It can be daunting but you don’t have to be alone.
