A Treacherous Walk With My Aging Mother Around the Lake at Her Apartment Complex

During this stressful time of quarantine, my mother has suffered from high blood pressure and cabin fever--two things that don't mix well. I didn't realize the severity of her health issues until we tried to walk around the lake at her apartment complex, a walk we had done many, many times before, and realized that she could hardly make it around anymore. Everything on the walk felt like a danger. I documented those dangers--and my fear for her-- in this map.

This is such an original idea, I spent a lot of time looking at this when I first saw it, a lot of food for thought here.
