Launching #thattotallyisnottwometers

In an effort to bring a little bit of fun to folks who are social distancing as a result of Covid-19 I am rolling out #thattotallyisnottwometers (#ttintm for short) with art that relates to the WHO suggestion to maintain a two meter distance between yourself and others. I plan to be adding a weekly image for as long as I can. Have a look and please feel free to share! Send me an email if you have a suggestion for a good subject!
