The Lockdown Diaries: Week 9

by Janice Nigro Tomorrow at midnight, Week 9 under lockdown in California will be over and we will be heading into Week 10. If I really try, I can convince myself that I’ve been on a vacation. Maybe vacation isn’t the right word. Sabbatical? Hiatus? Artist-in-residence? (if I'm really generous to myself). Maybe these are... Continue Reading →

The Lockdown Diaries: Week 8

by Janice Nigro Two months under lockdown. Another month and it will be one quarter of the year. This is unbelievable.

The Lockdown Diaries: Enlightenment

by Janice Nigro I’ve been doing my part during the lockdown. Staying indoors for most of my days. Fooling myself that I am doing some exercise in 500 square feet of space. Working on my projects. It’s kind of business as usual for me. Marketing, writing, and editing. Although it's harder for me to remember... Continue Reading →

The Lockdown Diaries: Another perspective

by Janice Nigro I’m not sick and I hope the dreaded coronavirus (or any other disease) is not currently taking up residence inside your body. I’m not enjoying this particular period of time in American history for many reasons. But there’s another way to look at all of this. It’s as if the whole world... Continue Reading →
