Chronicling the Days – Su Sokol

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

Please also join us on the QWF FB Community page, and let the authors know if their words resonated.

This piece is by Su Sokol, writing on April 1, 2020.

Today my 28-year-old daughter moved back in. She brought with her a chromebook, an eight-pack of toilet paper, a coffee grinder, two beers, a bottle of wine, her roller blades, and a colouring book entitled “Fleurs anti-stress à colorier.”

To read the rest of the story, please support our community and check out Chronicling the Days: Dispatches from a Pandemic

  1. Amazing and beautiful record of many milestones–eras, presumptions, beliefs and arrangements that sometime are not discussed but prevail over the years.
