Lockdown x 2

Lisbon

When last month feels like last year.

So, here we are. Day Two of Round Two of Spain’s nation-wide lockdown. No less than five people have written (including, I might add, a couple of complete strangers) asking me to continue writing. My apologies to those of you who were relieved when they read the last words of Lockdown #14.

Exactly one month ago I was in Lisbon (see photo above), in awe of a city that’s essentially a work of art. Now I’m about to share photos of toilet paper art recently created by the students from Bueu’s Atlantic Coast Playgroup.

How things change, and how they change so quickly.

“There are decades where nothing happens; and there are weeks where decades happen,” said Vladimir Lenin during other, perhaps more eventful times (but did they have toilet paper art?).

I hope these images will inspire you as they have inspired me. Who needs Lisbon, really, when we all possess the capacity for such greatness in our very own bathrooms?

Finally, a way to use my $8.00 duster-head replacements.

P.S. Thank you to Patrick from Atlantic Coast for letting me share these images.
