Lockdown: for now, I am well aware of what I take for granted: Roshan Mathews

Rotate the chair 180 degrees to look at a window behind my bed that I had never opened before. I have spent a long time looking at the night sky through this window. A cold breeze hits my neck on rainy nights.

He had been living one way for too long. I have been working continuously these past few years. When I wasn't working, I spent my time worrying about work. Now, I have stopped everything.

Now I am consuming a lot of art. I've been reading Francois Truffaut's Hitchcock/Truffaut and Marina Abramovic's Walk through Walls and watching Dave Holstein's Kidding series and Francis Ford Coppola's The Godfather trilogy. I have been exercising and eating on time and sleeping well. I regulated my news consumption and spent more hours cleaning my house, from the inside out. I rearranged everything and exchanged many unnecessary things for a necessary space.

Making art can happen, when you do it organically. For now, I am well aware of what I take for granted. My problems are small compared to half the population, and work really isn't everything.
