"What’s making me happy: making some good old fashioned Jewish Penicillin–chicken soup!"
The Coast is collecting and sharing dispatches from around the world about what life in the time of COVID-19 looks like, smells like and feels like. Some people are beyond the worst of it, some don't know the worst yet. Most are just trying to keep afloat. Share your own story here.
Who are you?
Self-love advocate, Queer Ashkenazi Jew, love of cooking, sharing recipes, quiet mornings, good coffee, cat mom and wife.
Where do you live?
What is your life like right now?
Life is bouncing between a strange sense of urgent immediacy and a quietness that only comes with waiting. I feel disoriented like I’m ricocheting between sudden overwhelming sadness and panic and then...normalcy. It’s surreal. That being said, I am counting my blessings every second that we are healthy and safe—I recognize so acutely right now that this is not the case for everyone.
What’s making me happy: sweet sunshine and birds singing, listening to my comforting favourites for music, and making some good old fashioned Jewish Penicillin–chicken soup!
