A Lockdown Story
By: M. Lewis Motter
When the lockdown first started, I was really kind of skeptical that it was as bad as they were claiming. So I didn’t put a whole lot of concern to it. In America the authorities were kind of late responding anyhow. However, after I talked to a few of my friends that were in the medical field and became more informed, I took the recommendations more seriously.
It really didn’t change my life as profoundly as it had for other people. I’m already introverted. I don’t have many friends, and live in a rural area.
The biggest impact for me was financial. I had already been struggling, and now it became more difficult.
In all, I’m thankful I’m resourceful.
The other huge impact was that it gave me time to work on my own business in creativity. My art, poetry, and writing flourished so much, more than ever before. It has also given me the opportunity to meet people from around the world. I’ve never been more successful. Success for me is never measured monetarily.

A Note From Eden: Dear Lewis,
I stan the gravity of brightness that emits from your story. I stan your ability to remain a light, even when speaking about the hurdles and darkness of life. You are truth. You are, and would always be a fountain of inspiration. You are an epitome of art and its awesomeness. Your heart is a masterpiece of strength, beauty and brilliance. And these three are reflected in your works (in art), with no exception to this story told. Thanks for sharing your truth with us at Express-Shun. The world is dark enough. Continue to shine the light that you are.
