Travel Quarantines: Enduring the Mundane, One Day at a Time

May Samali knew she’d reached her limit when she saw a tentacle emerging from her hotel dinner in Sydney, Australia. “I called downstairs and said, ‘I’m a vegan now, thank you!’” she said. “It was just so much fish. I’d gotten to the point where even thinking about it made me gag.” Ms. Samali swore […]

How To Make a Newspaper Pot Holder

Most people are doing a lot of cooking at home right now. These short cold days are the ideal time to enjoy steaming soup, warm roasted veggies and toasty bowls of comforting pasta. Newspaper is a good insulator, so why not turn it into a useful item that will protect your table from scorching dishes? […]

What to Do This Weekend

Welcome. This weekend, in the hours under your control, when you’re not tending to the too-numerous things that need tending to, I challenge you to go screen-free. And when I challenge you, I mean it as a dare to myself, to all of us, to stop streaming and scrolling, to muster our attention and devote […]

In Our Pandemic Isolation, Every Death Is a Covid Death

Weeks ago, we entered a new phase in our friendship during her home hospice. Here, life and death are not linear. They overlap, they share space, they cede ground to one another, moment by moment. “Living” is very different when that living is an active dying. It is breath labored and slowed, lost words, a […]

Cures for Loneliness

Welcome. I’ve been absorbed in tales of other people’s lives this week: a Times Magazine feature about the Princeton professor Dan-el Padilla Peralta, who sees classics as complicit in systemic injustice and is “advocating reforms that would ‘explode the canon’ and ‘overhaul the discipline from nuts to bolts.’” The Times documentary “Framing Britney,” about Britney […]

How to Exercise Outdoors in Cold Weather

When you are heading out, start with a base layer made of merino wool, polypropylene or material that will wick away water and sweat. This includes glove liners, socks and hats, which can get wet with sweat and freeze. Next, add a slightly thicker layer made of fleece or light wool and top it off […]

Super Bowl in Quarantine

Welcome. The Super Bowl is on Sunday, and like so much else these days, it looks different from previous years’: players tested daily, the stadium filled to just one-third its capacity, fans socially distanced and wearing masks. Whether you’re tuning in for the game; for The Weeknd’s halftime performance, on a stage set up in […]

Birthdays in Quarantine

Welcome. Take five minutes today and let The Times’s classical music writers and some of their favorite artists convince you to fall in love with string quartets. I spent my five with the musician and producer Rostam Batmanglij’s pick, the second movement of Ravel’s Quartet, an easy courtship. It’s been snowing here in New York […]

Erasure Poetry At Home

The past year has been difficult for many people. The pandemic, the politics, the job loss and the isolation — most Americans have had to find some new coping mechanisms to make it through. Here’s one: erasure poetry. Creativity can be healing in difficult times, but it’s not always easy to tap into those creative […]

Forget ‘Dry January’ and Other New Year’s Resolutions

“The world is on fire,” said Asia Wong, a clinical social worker and director of counseling and health services at Loyola University in New Orleans. “Why are you trying to lose 20 pounds?” ‘Everywhere you turn, it’s stressful’ Last year, Rebecca Fletcher, a teacher in Wirral, England, said she went the entire month of January […]

Getting Rid of Stuff

Welcome. Before weekdays and weekends were indistinguishable, we left the house. Now, we’re inside, many of us, most of time. With the same people and pets, or on our own; the same routines and rooms; and, everywhere we turn, the same stuff, so much stuff. What used to be décor is now clutter. What once […]

What Art Does for Us

Welcome. When I was 22, I was a factotum at a nonprofit theater in New York City. I made fundraising calls and addressed envelopes. The job was pretty humdrum, but it had one massive perk: I’d frequently get free tickets to shows I’d never be able to afford otherwise: Cherry Jones in “Pride’s Crossing”; “Art,” […]
