A personal note from Lilla. Some activities to keep you happy and sane. Erica Root’s hilarious quarantine image.

Two days ago, I woke up with a strong need to spread some positivity to our community. I hopped onto a Facebook Live and gave an hour-long impromptu talk, fully engaging with the viewers. With over three decades as a creative entrepreneur living through many economic ups and downs, I’ve got some hopeful perspectives to share.

I refer to this time as a powerful ‘in-between’ time–a time when the old way has passed and some time before the recovery–a moment to reassess, pause, reflect and go forth. Right now, I know we’re all in a little (or a lot!) of shock, processing, and feeling anxiety. This too shall pass. New advances will emerge, like treatments for the virus (which will come sooner), and a vaccine (which will come later).
When I worry about my ER doctor husband battling the virus on the front lines here in Boston, I think of all the people who are working to keep us safe, and I am grateful. I also want to reach out to thank our wonderful clients who have continued to license and commission work and support our artists. We’re here for you as always.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us for your projects. I hope you’re staying safe and healthy.
Scroll down for some fun books and games that you might enjoy during this ‘in-between’ time.
With affection,
Some new words to know.
