Looking back on 2020, I asked our artists to send me an image or a thought that sums up something they’re taking away from this strange year. One thing all of them said was that sheltering in place actually inspired them to get more creative. Brian Smale now knows more about the election process than he ever imagined possible. And Eli Meir Kaplan says he learned to loosen up with recipes: “Missing ingredient? No problem!.” Me, I learned that changing my outfit every day is excessive, that taking my office outside and following the path of the sun through the day is a pleasure. And that my neighbor’s son has trumpet lessons on Tuesdays at 3 p.m.
