The Same Moon, Mental Health with Covid-19, Polio & Covid-19


Sometimes you have to run far, far away to find your way home.

Recently wed—and quickly divorced—twenty-four-year-old Sarah Coomber escapes the disappointments of her Minnesota life for a job teaching English in Japan. What she finds when she gets there is far from what she expected, but it just might be exactly what she needs. Cynthia Brian interviews Sarah about her memoir, The Same Moon.


Many of us have sheltered-in-place for more than three months. People are dealing with social isolation, anxiety about health, and financial worries. What have been the mental and emotional effects of living with the threat of Covid-19. Go ahead and share your sadness about what you miss. It will unburden and free you.


The media compares the Covid-19 crisis to the Spanish Flu Epidemic of 1918. A Time Magazine article linked it more to the the beginning of the 1916 polio epidemic that preferred the hot months of summer to inflict its havoc. A vaccine wasn’t successful for polio until 39 years later in 1955. Hopefully we don’t have to wait that long for a Covid-19 vaccine.

Bio Sarah Coomber:

Sarah Coomber grew up on the Minnesota/North Dakota border, where she was fascinated by the stories of local refugees, international students and her grandfather, who spent years in Tanzania.

She writes of her own cross-cultural adventures, including The Same Moon, her memoir of Japan. She also has shared the stories of hundreds of other people in her work as a newspaper reporter, public relations professional and science writer.

Sarah earned her MA in mass communication from the University of Minnesota and MFA in creative nonfiction from Eastern Washington University. She has taught English in Japan and writing at the college level, and currently teaches yoga, integrating prayer, meditation and movement.

Sarah lives with her husband, son and the family pets in Washington state, where the topography and climate remind her of her other hometown across the ocean. https://sarahcoomber.com/
