These pieces were written at the beginning of the pandemic and 9 month later reflecting on what has happened. They are meant to explore what is in our human nature, our different capacities (both emotional and physical), and how technology facilitates our relationships with others especially in cases where it’s the only means of communication. Both works attempt to look at ways in which we can extend compassion to one another even if it’s behind a screen.
