Every evening since we’ve been at home—mostly sheltering-in-place—we take a walk to see the sun set. Gosh, there are so many tragic things happening to people in this time, but then I also find myself giving thanks for the joys of each day.

Like the sunset. Who knew how beautiful it could be? We live in New York City on the island of Manhattan, in the middle of millions of people, but not far from our apartment we can gaze out at the Hudson River and watch the sun.
