Distance is hard on us all right now. We know social distancing is necessary, but it is keeping us from our normal daily activities and relationships.

But sometimes, distances gives us a new perspective. We can see things in a different way, different parts of a whole together, that might not have been apparent up close.

Distance can be beautiful! It lets us see contrasts and patterns. We can see how far we have to go, or how far we’ve come.

But no matter the distance, always remember that you are not really alone. We are all in this together. Make sure you reach out to your loved ones!
