Shwmae. SO. How are you?
It’s been four months (ish) since we went into lockdown.
Three months to the day since we published our first Letter from Lockdown. (Thanks to Neil Cocker for writing our first Letter from Lockdown – Neil also wrote the very first thing we ever published on We Are Cardiff, so we’re very grateful to him for satisfying our strange desires for cyclical content journeys).
Since then, we’ve published over 80 pieces from you lovely people. You’ve given us your lockdown highs, and lows, details of your running routes, the things you’ve been cooking, all the Zoom calls you’ve been on. We had a letter from our youngest ever contributor. We even had our first marriage proposal. (Side note: he said yes!!!).
As lockdown is lifting (this version of lockdown, anyway), you’ll have noticed the stream of letters has dried up a bit.
We know it’s taken time for some folks to really get to grips with they felt about lockdown, so we’re not closing down the series.
Instead, we welcome you to write pieces about how your lockdown went, now you’ve had some time to reflect. Or you might still be shielding. Whatever. We’re still welcoming your stories, so please feel free to contact us with your Letter from Cardiff in lockdown.
Take care of yourselves, Cardiff.
