Emotions are contagious, we catch moods like germs. What do we see in each other in person that our virtual appearances mask? The paint translates the energy I get from being around others. A silver lining of quarantine is that with nothing concrete to look forward to, we have to make the most of each present moment. The people in our life are temporary and so are we. As an introverted person, being around others can be overwhelming. There’s less room to breathe and more emotions to feel.
