I live alone in the Beaches area of Toronto. I have no family except for a distant brother and my friends don’t live close by. All my classes, gatherings and the annual events I usually attend were cancelled in March. I had a very difficult time adjusting to our new reality – my new reality. I began walking the beach and parks and taking pictures. I now have 64 in a collection I call “Beach Wanderings – COVID – 19 Escape”. This photo resonates with how I see my situation. Still standing strong. Still standing alone.
