a view from my window during the time of the virus

by | Apr 27, 2020

We left campus on Friday, March 13th, believing we would return in a couple of weeks following an extended Spring Break. We were naive about what COVID-19 came to teach.

During the early weeks of COVID-19 lockdown, a lovely person on Facebook started a page called View From My Window. It quickly went viral, with people posting glimpses of their isolated worlds which, regardless of station in life, have become necessarily limited; small. The posts are like a balm, reminding me that we are all together in this giant web of belonging even as I feel so alone.
