Link Love: (Week Two Quarantine)

Wash Your Hands Raccoon

For me, this is my second week of social distancing/quarantine/lockdown. Tuesday was the start of a 30-day Stay-at-Home Order from the city of Kansas City. Previously, we were just recommended to practice social distancing, but this week things have gotten more serious.

I would love to make Link Love entirely a place for escape from the Covid-19 concerns in our world but I’m sure, like me, it’s good to have resources and inspiration for how to get through these tough times and also to hear how others are doing. Thankfully, the internet has made it possible for us all to not feel so alone.

However, using pens and pencils allow us to escape from the digital boxes. Like Laura posted yesterday, there has never been a better time to redouble journaling efforts to document this historic time. Journals provide a safe place to put down all our worries too. We can also take time to tackle some correspondence and reconnect in a more analog way (check out the Thank You, Internet post from Typewriter Revolution).

Love Ana

My hope is that you and your loved ones are healthy and well and that we must just concern ourselves with how to get through a trying time. If you have other suggestions or stories about your time in isolation, please post them in the comments.

  1. I’ve been writing a lot of postcards. Even if I’m not going to get them in the mailbox immediately, it comforts me just to write them. It’s also comforting to read that, from all indications, the virus cannot survive the tender mercies of the US Postal System. =)

    Hope you and yours are healthy and safe, good lady. Thanks for all you’re doing to keep our spirits up; it’s appreciated.

  2. Ana, I just want you to know that I look forward to your Link Love posts and end up clicking on (almost) every link when one arrives. Thanks so much for keeping us company and providing information and entertainment targeted to those who love pen and paper and all things related.

    1. Thanks so much for the kind words. I appreciate that you took the time to comment and provide feedback. Stay safe and healthy and enjoy the links.
