New - Uneased

We have pressed the pause button, while we watch the dead and the dying, asking when will we be free?  Today I feel sad and lonely.

Uneased is a collection of personal reflections during the Covid-19 pandemic in Spring 2020.  Four of us each took to our own comfortable creative medium in these uncomfortable times.  Lorraine kept a diary, Maggie picked up her camera, I wrote poems, Karen painted as our everyday lives were put on hold, uneased.


Uneased is available to download free for your kindle or iPad from Blurb Books UK.
