Right now, human contact, the very thing that keeps us going, that keeps me going, is a no-no. If I still lived in southern California, my experience of this quarantine would probably be very different from the one I am having now. Certainly more human contact. I’d be cooking up a storm for my daughter Keya, my partner Dean, as well as my friends.
I like looking after people and for years, my home was where people would gather for food and comfort. Right now, we would be talking—about this virus that has overrun the world and perhaps other things too, even if we had to do it sitting six feet apart.
