Short essay about life in Covid times

The Bare Life Review just posted my essay “We Had Time” on their website. Last year they published my story “Final Exam” in the print issue of their magazine. I loved the care and attention they gave to editing my work, so when I received their invitation to contribute to a special blog series on the coronavirus pandemic, I was eager to send them something, though I wasn’t sure what. A couple of days later, this little piece of reflection unspooled from me.
