How we Survived the Quarantine — in Portraits

Cornwall’s Lazlo Gyorsok spent the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic visiting (with masks and social distance) people in Cornwall, Conn., and seeing how they were spending time during the quarantine. The result is a collection of portraits called “While We Were Home,” now on display at the Cornwall Library in Cornwall.

Weeding Out the Walk-In

The fall season inspires many of us to tackle tasks in home spaces holding essential and non-essential stuff that has built up over the summer, or longer. Take, for example, a walk-in closet that has become a stretch-to-reach-in closet with various objects blocking the way.


“The Cuban Affair” by Nelson DeMille, “All Quiet on the Western Front” by Erich Maria Remarque and “The Proud Highway” by Hunter S. Thompson are all books that transport the reader away from the stress of quarantine. Photo by Hunter O. Lyle 

Forget the Plane — Flip The Page Instead

Autumn is typically a time when we dive back into books, after a summer spent, ideally, on vacation. But with the world in disarray as it is now, summer travel was nearly impossible, — and if you’re anything like me, five months of being cooped up have left you looking for any way out.
