A Cocoon With A View

A first-hand account by acclaimed writer Alice Taylor as she adapts to a new way of life in the self-isolation of the cocoon, which reveals previously unobserved wonders and the delights of the ordinary.

A Cocoon With A View

Back in the last weeks of February, which now feels like a hundred years ago, we here in Innishannon were busy planning what was termed ‘The Big Rake Off’ of the dead grass on the long sloping bank beside the road coming into the village. Happily unaware of forthcoming events, we were totally focused on creating our wild flower bank: to get something like this going you need a ‘metheal’, a word which prior to the corona virus was unknown to anyone under 40. Then everything changed ... Exploring the themes of community, family and personal wellbeing, Alice Taylor examines a world changed utterly by the arrival of a once-in-a-century infectious disease. Heart-warming, reflective yet always practical, Alice is a wonderful guide in a world unlike the one we lived in only a few short months ago.
