Love in a Time of Contagion 

Much like the novel by Gabriel Garcia Marquez which inspired the title of the song ("Love in the Time of Cholera"), "Love in a time of Contagion" examines the apparent paradox of love during the Corona-virus/COVID-19 pandemic of 2020/21: on the one hand, fear amplifies the already human need for proximity, touch and love; on the other, reaching for it -- across social distancing measures -- might be the very thing that compromises you or your loved one. But just as the pandemic has changed all our lives, behaviours and perceptions, so might it change our understanding of love. Here, it's love that finally triumphs.

My kids live away from me. In writing this song, I thought predominantly about them, with all my love.

Stay safe out there!
