‘Love in the time of Covid-19: My heart journey with love’ By Babalwa Ludidi

This short story is pulled out of a chapter titled, “My heart journey with love”; from the bigger project: “Love in the time of Covid-19”. Although a work of fiction, it is a project which has quickly moved my heart and, while in its process, has exposed me to real-life love stories which inspire the work. It is a story of a young woman by the name of Thandeka, residing in Cape Town, South Africa; and the roller-coaster that is her experience of love in one of the most traumatic seasons the world has, to date, found itself in – the grips of a pandemic. We follow Thandeka through her journey to loving, grieving the loss of that relationship, finding a reason to restore her faith in love again, and finding the love of her life in the process; as chronicled in the pages of her journal.
