I know the surge in Covid-19 cases is only temporary. At least, I keep telling myself that. Events are being cancelled and postponed left and right, which is a different narrative now as we enter season three of Covid. Last year, there were some openings, but with the vaccine starting to roll out, there was a sense of hope. But now? I don’t know what the “sense” is.
Disenchantment? Frustration? Hopelessness? Confusion? All of the above and maybe others not listed, too? Whatever the case is, I hope you and yours are doing well, recovering strong, and finding ways to thrive in a constantly temporary world. I’d love to say how much this is making me fluid, but a little predictability and certainty would go a long way right about now. I know I’m not the only one who feels this way.
Thus, it’s a quiet editorial week on my front. This week’s roundup features a handful of in-person events that should be safer for guests. From ballet from Penn Live Arts, a cool interdisciplinary exhibit from ArtYard, to music from some incredibly talented Philly youths, there’s substance to hold on to as we navigate (and hopefully stabilize) our senses.
