Keep visiting the things you love. Search for healing in the works of art, in the outdoor spaces and indoor corners, in the books and songs and trees and people that inspire you. Find the things that make you happy. Listen to your feelings and your bodies and your minds and continue to nurture them, no matter how minuscule or silly or ineffectual those thing seem right now. Know you aren't alone.
We acknowledge the fact we "aren't in the same boat" with many of you, that your boat has been put into greater jeopardy than ours has. But when your boat starts sinking, we will follow you down, because there is absolutely no point in floating if we are not floating together.
Sorry for the lengthy boat metaphor. Here is David Bowie:
"Oh no love! You're not alone,
No matter what or who you've been,
No matter when or where you've seen,
All the knives seem to lacerate your brain,
I've had my share, I'll help you with the pain,
You're not alone."
And Alex Vega:
"Come on and dream baby dream,
We gotta keep the light burning."
