Lessons from self-isolation in 2012

This is the story of staying home without going outside except for necessities for most of 2012. There’s a section of my memoir, The Beautiful Darkness: A Handbook for Orphans (2016), where I talk about self-isolating voluntarily to deal with grief. A couple of writers have mentioned this might be helpful for others as we all have to deal now with spending a good deal more time indoors, to stay safe and keep one another healthy. Understanding that everyone will experience this time differently and with various complications, I hope that it is valuable for you.
