DEAR ME | LITRO LAB PODCAST

Picture credits: Esben Bøg Jensen

Oh, how I’ve missed you! The sound of your voice intertwined with the octaves of friends, the chinking of glasses and tapping of tableware. / Where have you been? Behind glass? Behind screens? Behind masks? Masking your smile. Only hints of your crinkled eyes visible.

Lucia Cascioli

Check the news. Be there to support your loved ones. Help children go through schooling online. Do shopping for an elderly neighbour. Keep your friendships alive via Zoom. Go out with your face mask on, gloves and hand sanitiser. In the midst of it all, when was the last time you managed a moment of calm to simply be with yourself?

This podcast is a letter the author writes to a former self living in an easier past. She recalls the things that are lost: dinners with friends, travelling, watching someone else smile. Through honesty and acceptance, she checks in with herself and reminds us all that it may take a bit of time – but things will get better.
