Plague Diary

Not that my case is unique, but during these long, draining months of Pandemically-Paused Life, I find solace and relief whenever I doodle or hone a Gerty drawing. Today I looked through my collection of drawings and found some to share. Each one addresses Gerty’s reaction to or choice concerning COVID-19 in her idiosyncratic way.

I fill my morning crossword puzzle book’s empty spaces with doodles and, sometimes, finished drawings. This one is from early Spring.
Same source, but showing her a bit slimmer (no restaurant or take-out dining) and more relaxed
Not so sure she should mingle.
Getting into the spirit with creative mask design.

Gerty is slimming down and has embraced a more active life. Is she reflecting my enthusiasm for frequent early morning walks along the shores of our magnificent Lake Michigan? Could be.

  1. Susan, I’m not asking you to edit this piece. I’m recommending it as it is written. I would just need you to choose which two images you want to include, or to combine the four separate images into two composite images.

    I’m afraid I don’t know what you mean by “edit the rice.”


  2. Susan, if you intend to be included in this week’s ezine publication, you will need to share your link in the prompt on the group page. The deadline is midnight, Monday, 09 November 2020.


  3. You should share this in the WE PAW Bloggers ezine prompt, “Write to Cope” for week 32 –– only thing is, you will have to choose just two images to include with your section of the ezine issue.

    The ezine prompt is the pinned post on the FB group feed.
