Even in these unsettled times of the Covid-19 pandemic, signs of spring and art continue on Saturna Island. The requirements of isolation and social distancing seem a bit less harsh here on this island that has always had plenty of room for individuals and different lifestyles. Though the health-related concerns and effects on work, social exchange, travel, and morale affect us all, taking things a day at a time and valuing this day is one approach to a difficult situation.
I hope you enjoy these columns about art, ideas and travel adventures. I write them from my perspective as a a mixed-media artist and creative life writer with diverse cultural interests. -- Janet Strayer
