City Series – Matilde in Ankara, Turkey, We the Isolationists (153rd Corona Diary)
Our corona diary.
[Text and photo by Matilde]
I close my eyes in self-isolation from corona… and I see myself and the love of my life waking up in Delhi. One of the city which blessed us with some of the happiest moment of our life. I can still feel the smell of the tiarè outside and I can see the small park where I use to walk during the sunset time. I can feel the thick air of the night on my skin and I can hear the thousand voices of this city that never sleeps (sorry New York, but New Delhi has The Spark).
I can see myself writing my books under the shadow of a huge mango tree in Sunder Nagar just after being in Sarojini Nagar where I got an amazing red lehenga for my wedding.
I see all this and when I open my eyes I just feel grateful for all the beautiful moments I had the privilege to live. I am sure that many other will come and so I grab again my pen and I keep on writing.
