Farah Egby thanks for responding to our idiomatic writing prompt. I love learning about other cultures and your piece was very interesting. Completing your contribution combining both your shared living experience with your mom and historical Finnish background is awesome. My mom too is confined since the beginning of March alone in another city. I call her everyday. Last time I visited, end of February and early March, right before the confinement, I had brought her many mandala books. She does one practically every day. She says while doing a mandala, her mind wanders and she does not think of the current crisis. Hope your mom will stay safe.
