During this pandemic, a lot of people are physically separated from the people they love. However, that doesn’t mean that should stop us from spending time with each other. For this prompt, I ask that people do just that — hangout with the people they love, just in an auditory space.
- (Virtually) gather the people you miss hanging out with. Choose a time that works best for everyone and choose an everyday activity that you miss doing together. (It’s okay if times can’t be aligned.) It can be anything: take a walk, cook dinner, watch a movie, go on a drive, etc.
- Choose an activity. Take a 1 minute audio recording of yourself doing the activity. You don’t need to talk, just record the sounds that are naturally made when you’re partaking in that activity.
- Share those recordings with one another. Be transported into each other's lives, just by listening to those sounds, as if you were there with them.
- Share your recording using the submission form at the top of this page! Include the date, time, names & locations of participants, and activity. A compilation of the recordings will be made and sent back, commemorating the love still felt during this strange time that is quarantine.
