Art in the Time of Pandemic

I’ve been thinking of Gabriel Garcia Marquez’ novel: Love in the Time of Cholera since this whole thing began. I read the book years ago, and in case you didn’t know, it’s a wonderful movie too. Perhaps that’s why lately I have been browsing over my vacation photos from a trip to Colombia.



The story is set in Cartagena, a walled city on the Caribbean coast. And watching the movie transported me back to that vacation. It was a glorious visit. The air in Cartagena is salty and moist, and you find yourself naturally slowing your pace, lowering your voice, and calming your attitude.
