"Strange Times" by Richard F. Yates
[Ink on found cardboard with digital embellishments and color. 2020.]
We tend to take our daily lives for granted---living them is SO mundane---but when they are disrupted, we see the chaos and confusion that lies just below the semblance of order.
We also take for granted that our memories are solid. They ain't. They're Silly Putty. Just write down a few things, for your kids, for the sake of history. Favorite songs? Favorite t.v. programs? Favorite restaurants, night spots, or hangouts? Write them down.
Let it all be remembered...just in case "normal" never comes again...
---Richard F. Yates
