From the “Silver Screen” to looking for the Silver Lining
noun/ a consoling or hopeful prospect; something good that can be found in a bad situation
Although we don’t know when our theater will reopen, there have been lots of good things happening all around us. As the old saying goes, “Every cloud has a silver lining.” Can you add to the list below?
We are learning to adapt to new ways of doing things:
- Virtual Meetings
- Virtual Game-night and new ways of socializing from a distance
- Improved Meal Planning
- Lots of Me Time
- Stronger Family/Friend Connections
Virtual or homemade entertainment is yet another bit of silver lining that we get to enjoy during our ongoing quarantine. Check out Maya Hawke’s music video filmed in one shot by her father, Ethan Hawke. See their video for her new music single, Coverage.
