City Series – Ankita Sehgal in Jalandhar, We the Isolationists (80th Corona Diary)
Our corona diary.
[Text and photo by Ankita Sehgal]
I close my eyes in my self-isolation from corona… and I see myself drowning second by second in whirlpool of my own thoughts. I always felt the world needs to slow down, we need to slow down, that we are not kind enough… not just to the nature but to ourselves. But this is a different kind of calm that is resonating with my anxiety.
I think about Itlay, about their loss, about Juliet’s home I saw on airbnb a month ago… somewhere in France.
I don’t want the world to collapse, it’s too soon. I can feel myself collapsing second by second with it… in this self-isolation… I look up at the skies… and know, we will be kinder after this, not just to others but to ourselves.
