Synkroniciti is enchanted to welcome back writer Sara Collie with Field Notes from when the World was Ending, which won our essay contest at the end of July. This essay is a meditative reflection on the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic and how nature, manifest especially through birds, sustains and teaches us in times of fear and uncertainty. Beautifully clear and musical, Sara’s writing is, as usual, balm for the soul.
