Image Statement: In early 2020, we disappeared into our homes out of common sense and, in many cases, under governmental guidelines and regulations to socially distance. Before coronavirus, we were free and went where we pleased. Now there is anxiety and fear. It is difficult if not impossible to see neighbors, family, even strangers because pandemic restrictions, government- or self-imposed and fear of the virus demand distance and isolation. Behind closed doors, others have become invisible to us; we have become invisible to others. Life is a story of ghosts.
