City Series – Merlin Maria in Wayanad, Kerala, We the Isolationists (86th Corona Diary)
Our corona diary.
[Text and photo by Merlin Maria]
I close my eyes in my self-isolation from corona… and I see myself feeling my mum’s warmth. Her warm arms consoling my anxious heart. I hold her hands and walk into the rush of the city, not once complaining of the noise that has now covered the street. I slide by happy faces, and vibrant coloured rooftops. I see men and women dancing around, singing, children laughing their hearts out, and playing… and we disappear into the hustle and bustle, like everyone else.
