As the COVID-19 pandemic strikes and the country goes into lockdown, Ernestine Meletiou processes the gravity of the situation and prepares for a new normal. Her traditional hobby of planting a vegetable garden takes on new meaning as this year’s harvest may be required for survival. As she prepares for the spring planting, Ernestine recounts some of the joys and tragedies she has endured, ultimately affirming that the ongoing pandemic, too, will pass. She offers a dose of perspective for all of us as we accompany her on one of her first outings back into the world, and learn of all the things she is most grateful for in her life.
