The category really is ARTS, but that's not offered in the choices! I want to share a photo of the music on my front lawn that Willa Bednarz mentions - it was solace for me as a performing musician who had lost all my performing work as well, to have the young musicians on my lawn creating music together in the same time/space continuum! (which you just cannot do online - they tried! that's what encouraged me to invite them to my lawn once we were allowed to go out to parks). If you'd like to see the photo, email me [email protected] and I'll send it to you. There's no way I can see to put it here.
