Empty Spaces

FD is a doctor and when he tells me, it's okay, we can go out on the trails and ride, I take it as the word of the Old Mighty and fill up my tires.

The New York Times has a recent feature, Empty Places, I think it's called. There's also a place there with only stories, most pre-quarantine, but not pre-diagnosis. 

Here are mine. If you're from Chicago, you'll recognize them. It is truly eery, seeing so many empty places.

Ever since this started with social distancing, I've been spending a lot of time in outdoors, open spaces - the woods, mountains. And re connecting with nature.

SF Bay Area - 2 weeks in. Thankful for my little yard and putting my hands in soil. Fresh air and blue skies are a blessing. So glad to read from you again. May you and yours stay safe and well.
