Tell Your Story – California during the time of COVID-19

Tell Your Story - John, San Francisco

John, San Francisco

“I live with 5 housemates in a big Victorian house.  The pandemic has brought many blessings:  we work from home, we practice good hygiene and healthful exercise, we spruce up our personal and common spaces, we catch up on our reading—and each evening we gather for a sumptuous candlelit dinner accompanied by wines from our Napa farm.  All this is enabled by the absence of FOMO (fear of missing out) because there’s nothing to tempt us out: no restaurants, no movies, no sports events, no wild parties…”

“We will have learned to live with less.  For example, fewer meals in restaurants and more home cooking.  Quite a few San Francisco restaurants will not reopen.”
