Introducing Pandemic Journals
How we’re coping with unprecedented times here in Headwaters.
In her editor’s letter in our March issue, Signe Ball noted the coronavirus had just begun to rewrite the narrative of our daily lives. She predicted, “No matter how it evolves though, when it’s finally all done, what will inevitably remain are the stories we’ll tell about it.”
While we are far from looking at this global pandemic from the rear-view mirror, we are already collecting those stories. And we’re looking for more. We hope to record as much as we can at inthehills.ca or in our summer print issue. See our Pandemic Journals form to share your story with us.
Have you or a loved one been sick? Are you a frontline health care workers battling Covid-19 in a long-term care home or hospital? Are you an essential worker? A trucker bringing staples to stores? Maybe you’re a community volunteer, food bank assistant, restaurant owner, farmer or local manufacturer who has had to pivot. Maybe you haven’t been so lucky – how are you getting by?
Are you working from home? If you’re a teacher, parent or kid, please tell us how distance learning is going. And, yes, for a little levity, do share with us the best Zoom cocktail party (or wedding!) you’ve attended or your worst quarantine haircuts.
Editor’s note: If you have a friend or family member with a great story, but who may not have the time or ability to fill out the form themselves, please mention this on the form and we’ll contact you for more information.
