From Safwan in Karachi:
This isolation has given me much needed time for reflection and self-care. The photograph is of my workspace which is the headquarters for brainstorming, inspiration, and creation. I have read books that have been on my waiting list and visited memories long forgotten. I have been able to create artwork that has been just for me (something I was beginning to find extremely difficult as my career went forward and I couldn’t find time and motivation). Most importantly, I have learned to listen to myself and make choices that serve me better. It has been a positive journey so far and though the monotony is killing me and I can’t wait for things to go back to normal I will always be grateful that I had this time to reflect and grow.
