Isolation Drills: Fawziyya Heart

Like the majority of you, all of us in the Philadelphia area are staying at home, learning to adapt to our “new normal.” MAGNET is checking in with local musicians to see how and what they’re doing during this unprecedented time. Photos by Chris Sikich.

Heart: These past few months have been really life changing for me. I’ve been granted the time to be able to be in solitude and answer hard questions that have been lying dormant in my mind.

For one of the first times in my life I have begun to explore meditation and all its wonders it does on the mind. I’ve become more intune with how I identify spiritually and prayer has a whole new meaning in my heart.

On top of getting right with my mind and soul, I have been able to get creative in ways I would have never imagined. Although I don’t know where the entertainment industry is going, I know we as artists will do a good job at creating the “new way.”

Although I miss the scene, I feel like hang outs are so much more meaningful and time spent with close friends is not taken for granted. Sometimes living in the moment can seem like your living on the edge. These are the times of ” ya never know!”

What I’ve been trying to do is walk with gratitude and be where I am at any given moment. #ronaseason #timeforchange #blacklivesmatter
