In April 2020, we invited writers in Quebec to submit a story of a single day during the strange, uneasy time of coronavirus and pandemic, of social distancing and self isolation, of lockdown and quarantine.
We’re thrilled to announce that these stories have been gathered in Chronicling the Days: Dispatches from a Pandemic (Guernica Press). To learn more and buy the book, please visit https://www.guernicaeditions.com/title/9781771836579.
Please also join us on the QWF FB Community page, and let the authors know if their words resonated.
This piece is by Charlie Gedeon, writing in April, 2020.
A scene from the parking lot at the end of the world.
He looks up into the blazing sun. The cool wind across his face carries with it the memories of normalcy. Summer on the horizon always felt like hope and a fresh start, but the scene in front of him didn’t bode well.

One thought on “Chronicling the Days – Charlie Gedeon”
You really captured the off kilter strangeness of these quickly receding into normalcy times. (Who knew I’d be nostalgic for a pandemic!?)
