“I miss jumping into my car and quickly running to a store or to do an errand—it involved no thought, no fear, no lines, and no mask. I miss seeing my friends and going out to dinner. I miss getting massages and going to the library. I miss playing tennis and going to my weekly yoga class. I miss hugging my parents. I miss waving to my kids as the bus pulls away in the morning and hugging them when they return in the afternoon—filled with stories from their day. But I am so grateful to have a roof over my head, food in my fridge, and that we are all healthy right now. Nothing else matters.”

“The thing I miss so much about non-quarantine life is my daily interactions with friends, neighbors, and colleagues. I also miss the hustle and bustle of the NYC streets. We’ve barely gone outside, but the quiet and desolate streets make me so sad!”
