City Series – Sofia Ammassari in Brisbane, We the Isolationists (22nd Corona Diary)
Our corona diary.
[Text and photo by Sofia Ammassari]
I close my eyes in my self-isolation from corona… and I see the agonizing pain of my Italy, the country that I decided to leave many years ago because I felt it did not have anything to offer me, I felt I did not belong. I see the paradox of the expatriate: the more you live abroad, the more you get attached to your roots, the more you seek connection to your source. I see my family, not through a phone screen, but through my tears of joy when I will hug them again.
“We the Isolationists” series urges folks from any part of the world to share a brief diary starting with “I close my eyes in my self-isolation from Corona… and I see…” Not more than 100 words. With a horizontal-sized selfie, along with your city name… please mail to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
