Connected During the Covid-19 Pandemic

It appears that parents and kids are checking on their loved ones even more frequently than before the COVID-19 outbreak.

The simple question: ‘How are you?’ now has a new connotation, a renewed meaning. We genuinely want to know how the people in our lives are faring during these unusual times.

My mom, notoriously slow in calling, now video-calls me at different times of the day.

I have to confess that it can be annoying at times to receive calls during my working hours. However, due to the quarantine and the fear in the air, I could not be more grateful for these daily interruptions and still haven’t asked her to be mindful of when to call.

Luckly, there’s just one hour difference between our time zones.

How are you keeping in touch with the important people in your lives?

Hugs, Sandra

My name is Sandra Bissell.
I have been blessed with the opportunity to live as an expatriate for more than 2 decades.

Some of my passions are people, my family, good conversations, traveling, ethnic food, dancing and Capoeira, an Afro-Brazilian-Martial-Art-Dance.

Originally from the countryside of São Paulo state, in Brazil, I have enjoyed life in Kanagawa and Aichi prefectures, in Japan, Boston and San Diego cities, in the United States, São Paulo, Brazil, as an expatriate in my own country, Zurich – Switzerland and most recently Stamford, Connecticut, back to the United States.

As you may guess, I feel the most comfortable within the international community.
