ASM Art Teacher, Mrs. Pallio's Insightful and Funny Article on 'Life During Lockdown'

I am a native New Yorker who has been living in Milan, Italy for the last fifteen years.  I’m a full time working mother of 2 young girls (ages 3 and 5) and am married to a fantastic Italian man. As the stress of the corona virus situation begins to cascade in the U.S., many family, friends and former colleagues have reached out to me, asking about our daily situation, our process and even some advice for their potential future. As I respond to individual texts and emails, I thought it might be beneficial to share these reflections with a wider audience.
