Notes From My Window During COVID-19
by Lorraine Currelley

My work looks at my life since COVID-19 and how I navigate vulnerability, frustration, anger, real moments of fear, anxiety, and news of increasing infections and deaths.  My present life measured by armoring up for strategically planned trips for survival supplies.

I learn of the death of George Floyd and immediately I start to grieve his murder and those before him. His last words I can't breathe haunting my hours. I sit with my ancestors and listen to their words. They tell me I must write to breathe for George Floyd, those before me and myself.
