Today was a day off from this life I'm leading in New York.

I was a tourist for a day where it is okay to stop and look around: The American Museum of Natural History.

My boyfriend Rich and I meandered through the great halls filled with dinosaurs and giant stuffed mammals, talking about our favorites and tidbits we knew about each one.

We went to the gym, and I ran until sweat trickled down my neck. I bought groceries and carried them home.

A simple day in a not so simple time.

This evening, as the hours tick by, I realize that tomorrow awaits -- another day of uncertainty and surely strangeness.

I am oddly comforted today that I am not the only one facing such a question mark future. I know bills have to be paid and things have to be done, but just stopping for one day made such a difference.

However, there are many things happening...more to come.

I'm following along with interest, Amanda, and wish you the best.
