Sometimes the Soul Needs Chocolate: Pandemic Odes
This book is a collage of one North American writer's thoughts, feelings, and impressions during the early Covid-19 Pandemic years, 2020 - 2021. Political crises and climate change-driven wildfires combined with the virus' chaos and drove many people to anger, panic, and despair. Still, the world remained bittersweetly beautiful. Wistfulness, memories, and laughs became needed antidotes to the madness. Sadly, Covid stays with us, and may slam into our societies again. This book can remain as a remembrance of these times, and a reminder that we can still celebrate life and survive until better days.
