Day 50: Jacqueline E. Lawton

Jacqueline E. Lawton with Lormarev Jones

Chapel Hill, North Carolina, United States

This short play is still in development, but I am interested in writing about how this moment … this great pause is allowing us all an opportunity to evaluate our lives. This is a time of deep introspection and gaining immense perspective. It is also a time of great change. We must meet this moment with humility and grace. I am writing about what it has been like to meet this moment and find deep peace in letting go of how things used to be.
