We're Feeling Nostalgic For Quarantine Life. It Wasn't All Bad.

We're not the same people today that we were before covid upended our lives last spring. We found ways to survive a deadly and invisible virus, even as it threatened our survival. We learned to work from home, sew masks, Zoom, and create new words to describe our unique situation. And scientists developed vaccines so we could adapt faster than the virus could mutate. 

Now, we're realizing that we don't want to leave behind all of our new "normal" as we prepare to return to the routines of our pre-pandemic "normal."

We talk about that and play some of your essays.

Colin McEnroe and Cat Pastor contributed to this show. Special thanks to Diane Orson, Deputy News Director/Southern CT Bureau Chief, for voicing the essay, "Clarity," by Ilze Krisst.
