I've been considering check-ins with people from the fediverse, where we can log into a self-hosted video/audio/text chat and literally just check in.
We can talk about things we've read, watched or listened to. We can share our pet pictures, or talk about things we've tried for the first time. We can even share our low points, talk about issues with people who are in the same place.
Maybe a problem shared is a problem halved etc. I can only volunteer my bandwidth and cat.
Is this something that may help the isolation? If so, I can set something up.
