Curaduría: Marisa Russo | Traducción: Magda Doyle


I loved winter when weather created an indoor igloo!
I loved staying in and letting the world drift by.
I loved the coziness of watching flakes dance by my window.
I loved the patterns they made against the glass.
I loved the hush of silence.
I loved curling up on a cushiony couch under a warm afghan by the
I loved reading until my heart’s content.
I loved drinking a hot toddy or a glass of wine as the fire crackled.
I loved the solitude with my own thoughts.
I could stay forever in my igloo
Until the day a pandemic arrived.
¡Me encantaba el invierno cuando el frío formaba un iglú interior!
Me encantaba quedarme quieta y dejar el mundo pasar.
Me encantaba el confort de ver danzar los copos de nieve por la ventana.
Me encantaban los dibujos que formaban al tocar el cristal.
Me encantaba el callado silencio.
Me encantaba acurrucarme en el suave sofá debajo de una cálida manta
junto a la chimenea.
Me encantaba leer hasta que mi corazón se regocijaba
Me encantaba tomar un té calientito o una copa de un buen vino
mientras el fuego crepitaba.
Me encantaba la dulce soledad de mis propios pensamientos.
Podría haberme quedado para siempre en mi iglú
Hasta el día que llegó una pandemia.
