Cures for Loneliness

Cures for Loneliness

Welcome. I am absorbed in other people’s life stories this week: about a Times magazine Princeton Professor Dan-El Padilla Peralta, Who sees the classics as complicit in systemic injustice and is advocating “reforms that will ‘explode in the canon’ and ‘overhaul the discipline from nuts to bolts.” “Times Documentary”Fruiting brittany, Britney Spears and the court-ordered conservatism she has been following since 2013. A story about mental training Polish tennis player Inga Svotek, A favorite at the Australian Open. A profile of Author Patricia Lockwood, Which has a new novel next week.

This is my one Salute to loneliness, Go deeper, learn about someone else’s life. It is easy, especially now, 10 months into the epidemic, to feel the world’s small. The stories help. Whatever keeps you connected, it makes you curious and aware of the vastness of the experience.

“I’ve started a blog where I write stories from my everyday life and I share ideas and events that I want me to tell to the people I love,” from Annie Arbor, Michigan Eleni ji wrote.

Podcasts help Carrie B in Morton, Wash. Feels less isolated: “If I’m knitting alone, I put on a knitting podcast (more of them than you might expect!). It changes my knitting experience so I think I’m knitting with friends. The conversation is going on, and we’re all doing the same thing. If I’m cooking, I’ll listen to the Food Podcast to the same effect. “

Amanda B., in Manhattan Beach, California, sends notes from home: “During my weekly grocery I pick up some tourist postcards (or you can make them with everyday ingredients you find at home). They are quick and easy to write, my loved ones enjoy getting a personal note with a beautiful picture on the front and I feel more connected to that person. “

JoAnn R. Connecting with her past: “Having kept a magazine since 1956, I was always there to move them, and the epidemic seemed as good as any time. It is like time travel. Many of my characters are gone. So in that regard, I have felt like a magician: there they are again alive and well. When I take a deep dip into the past, I am young, married and raising my children, traveling, working, all my dogs are alive and overbearing. My parents and friends speak such words comfortably as they always did. “
