In case you haven't done the math lately, this is the 6 month marker for the pandemic, which admittedly may feel rough for some. Dr. Aisha Ahmad had some *beautifully wise* words to share on Twitter this week about it. To summarize her thread: Power through, take heart, do not despair, and take a breath.

We followed the light all evening and ended up at Asylum Lake Preserve by the end of this session just in time to catch the sunset in the field. If you haven't explored Asylum lately, I suggest you go the hour leading up to sunset and bring yourself a picnic. It's quite the spot! ☀️
