The Quarantine Diaries

How's everyone doing? Health, family and well-being above my word spill any day. What an absolute time we find ourselves in! I'm not sure this generation has ever experienced anything close to seeming this apocalyptic, and alas we will get through this. Locked down around the world, I hope you're all well and safe, together with your close ones and taking this time to enjoy the variety of tea in your cupboards as well as kicking butt on projects you've been meaning to start/finish/continue. I've been dusting off certain parts of my inbox, calling friends abroad, meditating to calm the nerves and started knitting! (I don't even like knitting that much, but I've been making wash-cloths for home, and my kitchen is loving them). 

It's truly more evident than ever, how interconnected we all are. The Brits are no more immune to the coronavirus than the Italians and the Chinese. The world is our oyster but first and foremost our family. Now, a personal note. Firstly, I'm not in a fancy hotel in Paris, like the image could suggest. Two days ago I was prepping for lockdown in London, and with my feet having been on Italian ground only 3,5 weeks ago, with things still seeming normal, it felt bizarre to me, that London had thousands of cases already, and looking to its neighbours the government still didn't take action or give out sufficient preventative guidelines to prevent the same situation. I tearpouringly realised Sunday night, that at this unknown time, I'd struggle hardly going through it myself. My mind was a non-stop news display board and whilst I wasn't in panic, I knew it was a time for precaution. Not for my own health, but for those around me. Right now, we truly show our care  best by keeping distance. Making space, for each other and ourselves, and whilst we may have healthy bodies that will treat this like a flu, loved ones with weaker immunesystems your best friend's father with asthma or perhaps the security guard at your workplace's mother may not. Knowing this, I wasn't willing to take any risk, an accidentally passing on something I didn't know whether I had. Anywho, my home country Denmark was shutting institutions down by the time 500 cases had been confirmed. This was only a few days after there'd only been 35 cases. They announced that they'd be shutting down the borders, and whilst it took me a minute, I got myself back to Denmark this Monday. 

I'd love to hear how you guys are doing. Let's share and support each other in this time, my DM's are open on Instagram, the comments below will be checked and responded to, so let's help get each other through this. Whether you're in quarantine  alone or with friends and family, let's be here for each other.

I've made a couple of playlists for those wanting some nice calm but groovy tunes for doing things around the home. Find it on Spotify and Apple Music!

Lots of love,
