I am sending this editorial from NYC, at the verge of its shutdown due to COVID 19. People I know and myself have been in self-quarantine for a month now. I never wanted my editorials to have a detailed narrative, yet this one seems to find itself one. This editorial is inspired by the feelings of quarantine during this global emergency of COVID 19. The story is a fictional and poetic version of our lives under the threat of this pandemic, and I want to tell this story in order to express our fear of loneliness, boredom and invisible danger. Quarantine brings out strange moods in each and all of us --- we are alone by ourselves but we can not get our own time, because our daily routine is abolished by the disease. In the end, there is a sense of hope that we will walk out of our house and enjoy life again when this is all over.
