Flower Flash, Sleeplessness & Amazing Photographs from Where Art & Life Meet

Connecting & Community Through Art During the Pandemic from Where Art & Life Meet

I haven't stepped foot out of our house since Saturday, but I have had hundreds of interactions with people from all over the world, which is both amazing and delightful. Community.
