We Will Get By Aileen Torres-Bennett

I hope all of you are doing well, given the circumstances. Even all the way out here in Fiji, the coronavirus has arrived. The capital city, Suva, is in lockdown, and there is a curfew.

But things are good overall. It’s a time of togetherness at home, creativity, reflection and, as always, gratitude.

Funny story: I conceptualized this illustration as the Grateful Dead‘s Steal Your Face icon quashing the coronavirus beneath it, but hubby said the thing on the bottom doesn’t look like the coronavirus. He thinks it looks like a bed of roses.

Either way you look at it, I like the message: triumph and optimism.
