Laughter and Forgetting
There’s a weird vibe in the air in NYC. Kinda like the pandemic is ‘old news’. A big ‘pandemic, yawn’. Or, ‘oh yeah, the pandemic, is that still happening?’ People are over it. Pandemicked out. And New York is slowly re-awakening too. The florist, the liquor store and the coffee shop across the street have all re-opened. And most restaurants in my hood are all doing take-out and delivery. There are definitely a lot more people on the streets and in the park. And I haven’t heard an ambulance siren in quite some time. Thank God. Only 48 people died in New York in the last 24hrs. And all hospitals are reporting manageable admissions.
