Heading Back to Work

This month I went back to work for the first time since March! It’s only going to be a day here and a day there. It felt so … not normal. Honestly, I felt like I’d walked onto a movie set and not real life, and we were all just actors.

This is the 42nd Street subway stop, which is normally packed. That was unexpected, because a lot of places have opened up. It shouldn’t have been quite this empty. It must have been the time. I started my shift after regular rush hour. Oh! I just figured it out. Trains had just been through and these are the people who’d just missed them.
