Friday's Follow-Up #ClapBecauseWeCare Sessions 51+ 52

A #CLAPBECAUSEWECAREPARTICIPANT

I'm bit behind in my coverage of the #ClapBecauseWeCare sessions that I've been participating in since March 30, 2020. These tributes are a small way to honor our first responders, health care professionals and essential workers who are keeping us safe during this COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic. I joined in on March 29th, two days after the onset of the event and have been posting content about each one of them.

This morning's blog entry covers sessions that took place on Wednesday May 20th, as well as  Thursday (last night) May 22nd, and the photo atop this entry is from the May 20th session.

My last coverage of these tributes was published here on Blogger on May 19, 2020; which was the fiftieth time of the tribute's occurrence. They initially began on March 27th 2020.

In my coverage of that 5-19-2020 event, I featured a participant who gave a one man concert using his frying pan and a cooking utensil an instrument. On the 20th, he appeared again and performed an encore during the tribute, as evidenced in the next sequence of photographs.

Towards the end of the session a lone American robin showed up but it was a bit too dark to get a decent photograph of him/her but the creature is still worthy of a nod for adding his/her song to the event.

....  and to reiterate what I've been saying here on Blogger, "During this time where many people are confined to their homes due to lockdown restrictions (re the coronavirus pandemic), these books (whose stories are set in my rooftop garden) are great to have around as a reminder that there is still so much beauty in our fallen world."

On another note, the following is a bit of coverage (photo-ops) re last night's (Thursday, May 21st) clap/cheer tribute.

I've heard from a variety of sources that our first responders, health care professionals and essential workers who are keeping us safe during this COVID-19 pandemic truly appreciate these tributes.

Wearing a face-mask is truly an even better sign of appreciation for our healthcare professionals, first responders and essential workers.

You undoubtedly know, dear reader, it has recently been noted that the importance of wearing a mask cannot be stressed enough as a means a to prevent one person from inadvertently spreading the coronavirus to another.

But the effect of one seeing so many people wearing masks has already had a profound psychological impact on many persons; therefore when Fine Art America (FAA) recently informed me that it had added the ability to imprint my images on cloth face-masks designed for everyday use when out in public through its sister site, pixels.com, I was thrilled at the prospect of being able to have this done.

With so many people wearing face-masks, I started to think what it must be like for babies, toddlers, and older children — or residents of assisted living and nursing home facilities cut off from visits by family and friends — to be looking into the faces of adults wearing a “clinical–looking” mask.

How frightening and confusing that must be for them! I hope that seeing my images imprinted on face-masks makes the world a lot more cheerful for them.

I have joined with fellow FAA artists by selecting four of my images to be used with face-masks.

They can be seen in the following four images (or via the link https://bit.ly/2S15zjM to view them all together on FAA). Please note by clicking on a photo (below) for an individual mask, you can read specifics related to it.

Each mask, made from 100% polyester, is one-size-fits-all using two woven, elastic loops to secure it around the ears.

By the way, a press release announcing my masks was made live today! Please click here to read it and remember, when purchasing, be sure to read the full description on the product page.

And there you have it dear reader, a bit of information re the fifty-first and fifty-second sessions of #ClapBecauseWeCare tributes that took place in my hood.

This evening May 22nd, will be session fifty-three and I hope to report on it soon after it takes place, so check please check back on Blogger tomorrow morning.
