One hundred years ago last March, as the first lockdown loomed and the nation’s unhinged toilet roll hoarding reached fever pitch, I turned to my spiritual practice for a sense of serenity and order: lists.


To-do lists, playlists, reading lists, wish lists; they’re the scaffolding that keep me upright when things feel wobbly. In an effort to quell my rising unease, I made a lockdown list of activities and rituals I thought would keep me sane during the four to six weeks I figured I’d be stuck at home.
