Covid Creativity: 6Mar2021

by Michel Latreille

I guess Covid has affected me in one way more than I had realized in that I seem to have (hopefully only temporarily) lost my carving mojo. Probably a very large part of this loss is because I no longer have the great social and interactive aspect of my weekly meetings with my two separate Glengarry Encore groups. 

On Monday afternoons a group of like-minded carvers would meet to share our creative passion, offer support, and enjoy our craft. On Wednesday mornings I would teach carving to beginners as well as some very creative and aspiring woodcarvers. I guess I did not realize how much inspiration and drive I garnered from these two groups until they were missing from my life.

Hopefully, this is just a temporary setback; hopefully, we can soon rejoin our respective inspirational groups and all recover our lost mojos.
