Here’s what our shop volunteers have been up to over the past several weeks:
Shop volunteer Beth was inspired by Queen/David Bowie’s 1981 song “Under Pressure” and how the lyrics relate to COVID-19. Here’s an excerpt from a collection of illustrations she put together.
“I’m walking a lot, reading, streaming opera and sorting through hundreds of photos and albums. One of my favs… apparently I was rambunctious as a toddler and sometimes had to be on a leash! My grandma is 'walking' me.”
-- Jan, shop volunteer
“During the quarantine I’ve rediscovered some simple pleasures, such as music (I’m learning to play the piano!), long walks in the fresh air and the unexpected joy of having my three children home again.”
-- Debbie, shop volunteer
