The lock down chronicles:
Eduardo Recife

1)How are you doing in this Covid-19 pandemic?

I feel very fortunate because my house is at the countryside, away from the city, near the mountains and it’s very peaceful here. So, I can only feel gratitude for that. I also brought my parents to stay with me, so they are more secure and have a better place to stay. What is more troublesome is not being able to see some family and friends or go out without any sort of fear… I also had some plans for traveling that were canceled. 

2)Are you being able to telecommute / work from home?

Yes, work did not change at all. I work at home and I very rarely have to meet a client in person; 99% of my work is done online.

3) Did the lock-down affected your creativity and art making? How?

Yes, some of the projects I was working on had a pause on the first 2 weeks and I had a lot of free time to work on my own projects. I did some works related to the moment we are all living…. Trying to bring some hope in this time of uncertainty and fear. But slowly things are returning to normal as far as work. 

4) Are you able to track positive moments or things that happened during this crisis so far?

The positive side of this for me is that having more time it’s a great opportunity to get back to some things that were procrastinated. Finish some books and projects, study more, practice more, meditate more… And also it’s a good moment to value what we have, instead of what we are missing.

5) What’s the first thing you would like to do when we can get back to normal?

Just meet some family and friends. It’s strange living so close to those we love and yet not being able to see them. Also, I have plans to keep traveling and studying…
