“There are so many little things that get lost in the everyday hustle and bustle, that it took a global pandemic for me to stop and notice them: Sunshine peeping through my window every morning. The sound of birds, hinting at warmer weather to come. Handwritten notes left on my bedroom door by my roommate before she left town…I want to keep reminding myself that there are good things even in the most insignificant moments.”– Samantha Jones
During the pandemic, Urban Plains staff members are participating in “Home on the Plains,” a series in which we reflect on our experiences regarding quarantine from wherever each of us may be.
In these unprecedented times, we will be asking ourselves: How are we experiencing social distancing? What are we learning about ourselves? What are we learning about the communities around us?
Check out Samantha’s episode below.
At Urban Plains, we seek to produce content that celebrates the Midwestern experience. While our staff come from all over the United States, we’ve each made a home in the rolling plains and friendly cities that make up this unique region of the country. In the coming weeks, we hope to be a place to find peace of mind during this unprecedented time. We will continue to share the stories, videos, podcasts, photos, and other content that we know you have an appetite for. Wishing good health to you all.
