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.
