Marvelous

This collection is a magnificent look at the world during the pandemic and all the rage surrounding us in the days before lockdown. I found it to be an honest and open look at others take on things that I might have missed. I would recommend this to anyone who finds themselves wondering into the unknown world of another persons reality.

A few of my favorites: Pandemonium by Marcia Weber; Postcard from Pandemic by Robert Okaji; What I Discovered in the Pandemic by Kim Harvey: No More Kissing in Paris by Maria Gray (one of my favorite poem titles of all time); Eden by Rachel Finch; P is for Pango
