“The last day I worked was March 15th.  We were halfway through our weekly Sunday night show at Bathtub Gin when the city announced it would be closing bars and restaurants.  We all stayed a little too late and drank a little too much, not wanting to leave, knowing it would be a while before we were back together.  Like everyone else, we had no idea what was going to happen.

After 15 years in NYC, last year I finally reached a goal of making my living solely as an artist.  Now I was home and it felt like everything I'd built was gone in an instant.  Every day was a rollercoaster of emotions.  The uncertainly of it all was and still is gut-wrenching.  So many unknowns.

But I found a kind of peace. Not quite direction, but inspiration and motivation.  For the first time since I was a little kid, I didn't really have to do anything other than what I wanted.  I was able to slow down and just listen to my creative instinct.  I started playing an instrument every day for the first time since I quit piano in the 8th grade, I started painting again, doodling, cooking long elaborate meals that require lots of chopping, writing scary stories, napping in the sun. Then Kirra called and asked if I would do a virtual show, then the slipper room asked if I would create a show for them, and I remembered that nothing is gone, only evolving.

Things will never be the same, but I want to believe they'll change for the better.  We were all forced into this sudden evolution and I'm excited to see where it takes us.  I miss everyone and can't wait to be back with my people again, but I'm going to miss this quiet moment too.” - @bananaland for 'Seclude in the Nude'
