sunlight reaching the earth's surface was--wait for it--September

I think the earth heals quickly, if only we can give her a
chance--of course, it is a bummer that it has to be in this
fashion, but another way to look at it is the quarantines will be
an interesting experiment--and the results will be fascinating,
once we get through it all.
Stay safe everyone! Find fun art projects to keep you engaged.
