Reading Isn’t Cancelled

People worldwide have been negatively impacted by the current pandemic. Some have been affected financially, some physically, some mentally. Lifestyles have changed. Relationships have changed. Our values have shifted. But I drew this picture of my cousin reading to remind every disheartened person that there are still simple things we can all enjoy right now. Reading is one of my favourite hobbies, it transports the reader, even if only for a few minutes, to an alternate reality. This is now.
