When the lockdown began, I reminded myself how privileged I was to be living in this house that has felt too big for the two of us in the past. On the days when I was feeling cooped up, I reminded myself to be grateful for this neighborhood with wide streets that provide places to get outside. Now, almost 8 months later, I continue to be grateful for this place and especially the view from this window. I sit at my desk, and watch people and dogs going up and down the street, catching the sun on the days it brings light inside, and watching the rain as it brings puddles and quenches the grass. This is what I want to remember.
