In April when we realized that in order to stay safe we would have to adapt to a quarantined existence before our lives could return to some semblance of normalcy. We discussed ways to keep our community close as we explored ideas to fulfill our mission. We decided that from time to time we would compile a collection of members’ commentary such as essays, poetry, stories, recipes, book, and video reviews to share. Hence was born the Corona Chronicles which has gone out to our mailing list approximately every two weeks. It has elicited comments, responses, and additional material to continue printing every two weeks. Hard copies of the publication are regularly mailed to those members without access to computers. To say it has been successful is an understatement and topics have included everything from kayaking to meditations on the pandemic. It has been suggested that we “publish” this effort as a document on how we lived during this pandemic.
