#chocolatebrownies #stephencovey Breath in – breath out, as another day in quarantine begins. The morning is not so different from pre-quarantine days: wake up early, make coffee, cook breakfast, play with my son, feed the dog, discuss plans for the day with my husband, do a family hug if the spirit is low. A quick meditation to focus on what needs to be done, breath in – breath out. Beneath the surface, things are deviating from the usual. It feels…

Cultural activism of the foreign kind by Nathalie Sallegren

Cultural activism of the foreign kind by Nathalie Sallegren

I surrender now in a way that I wouldn’t have been capable of before. A complex network of selfish emotions bubbled under the surface of my professional ego before the pandemic and my social and geographical isolation is now experienced by everyone. No longer mine to suffer alone. I am shamefully relieved. We are all mortal and cannot control the way the world turns. Cultural work has become the natural steam for me, I have learnt to rely on it…

A 25m2 time capsule by María Paloma Velázquez

A 25m2 time capsule by María Paloma Velázquez

At home. Under shelter. Locked down. In quarantine. Alone. In solidarity. My residence is small, but warm. 25m2 in total. An en suite room that I have appointed as a space of rest, leisure, dining, work, exercise, study, and social gathering. It has served for all these activities before, but not exclusively. Now it is an epitome of all of them. It is my temporary host, a space of restriction and safety. It has witnessed all my habits, emotional expressions,…
