The Lockdown Diaries: Week 12

by Janice Nigro The same title convention, but I think we’re no longer in lockdown in Los Angeles. Maybe we’ve morphed into something else. Lockdown plus? Now windows and doors are boarded up, and military helicopters fly over long after it’s time for bed. It’s as if the words people sling at each other in... Continue Reading →

The Lockdown Diaries: Week 11

by Janice Nigro This week beats all. I started this post with this sentence before all hell broke loose across the USA and now the world. More on this in a minute, as the air reverberates from the force of military helicopters flying over my apartment in Los Angeles county. I started with this sentence... Continue Reading →

The Lockdown Diaries: Week 10

by Janice Nigro Entering double digits for weeks in lockdown in California. I think we’re beginning to come out of it. That’s about all I’m going to say because life can go on somehow for those of us without a health crisis. Ten weeks in though and I can't shake the strange factor. Nothing is... Continue Reading →

The Lockdown Diaries: Week 9

by Janice Nigro Tomorrow at midnight, Week 9 under lockdown in California will be over and we will be heading into Week 10. If I really try, I can convince myself that I’ve been on a vacation.

The Lockdown Diaries: Week 8

by Janice Nigro Two months under lockdown. Another month and it will be one quarter of the year. This is unbelievable. And yet, I’m worried that if it’s coming to the end, have I accomplished anything? The lockdown is one of those things like the seasons which we don’t have much of in California. Seasons...

The Lockdown Diaries: Week 7

by Janice Nigro Wow, April 2020 is one for the books. Suddenly, it is May and already 06 May 2020. Cinco de Mayo has passed. So has the deadline for lifting lockdown. Funny how 30 April has just sneaked past us. Life is not so different for me, especially as a freelance writer and editor.... Continue Reading →

The Lockdown Diaries: Week 6

by Janice Nigro You would think I would be running out of things to write about after a month and a half in lockdown and feeding my soul (eating chocolate). But the world out there keeps on giving me something to ponder on the page, even though I have limited interaction outside my apartment. But... Continue Reading →

The Lockdown Diaries: Week 5

by Janice Nigro No thoughtful title, just which week this is under lockdown in Los Angeles if you don't remember. The Lockdown Diaries is becoming a travel journal of sorts, of the kind of adventure you hope to have only once in your life. It’s definitely of the slow travel variety. New experiences. My most...

The Lockdown Diaries: Week 4

by Janice Nigro This week, well, I believe we are into week 4 of lockdown in California and about to enter into week 5. I'm writing this at 72 hours without leaving my apartment. It starts to be a real test of the stretch of your imagination on what you can do and what there... Continue Reading →
