This week the governor of Wisconsin issued a stay-at-home order, but called it instead a “Safer-At-Home” order. I really like that distinction–it’s not simply a directive, but instead gives the reason for its issuance in the name. It is indeed safer if we all just stay home for now.
Even though the official order was only issued this week, my family began our time all together at home the week before. School had been canceled, my husband began working from home and we started to figure out how to be all together all the time while simultaneously keeping some semblance of normalcy to our days (and not watching too much TV!). It seemed natural to get my camera out and start photographing each day. And so here is week 1, presented in two pictures per day.
My goal is to continue making two pictures each day that when put all together tell the story of this time in our life. But I’ll give myself graceful permission to skip a day if I need to, because I think that graceful permission to not live up to our self-imposed standards of what this time “should” look like is the only way we can find our way through it.
