[ 2020 ]

“Pandemic has begun. over last Christmas: local taxi drivers warned to avoid going nearby a huge open market, soon to spread across oceans in two Months after its LUNAR NEW YEAR. as cultures and nations differ in living habits and conjuring measures to fight this deadly virus: Politics seem to be catalyst in informing its people of how it is and what to do. Therefore most Worldly art events concentrated during Spring and Autumn are all postponed with no alternates dates in-sight. Although we are but a speck in this endless Universe: May the Lord forgive for all our sins to-date as we contemplate to look-back into our hasted past, A-men”
