Pablo Picasso once said, “The purpose of art is to wash the dust of daily life off our souls.” COVID-19 has flipped our worlds upside down — making daily life look more and more like the same day, every day. Picasso would agree that we need art and creativity to fuel our souls now more than ever. In response to this need, The Reflector is featuring the short story, Charlie’s Place. Charlie’s Place inspires readers to use their imaginations and delve into their creativity, at any and every age. If you’ve been in a COVID-19 slump, we invite you to unwind and immerse yourself in the thrilling adventures of Charline Pin.
