Today’s photo shows brake marks from a hard stop in Uptown Charlotte. The photo also shows a couple strolling on a cold winter day and, looking closely, one can find friends enjoying a walk in the park. As such, I use today’s photo as a metaphor for life during the pandemic. A lot of what we love has stopped. However, love goes on.
During these difficult times it is good to notice what is beautiful. This photo was taken at The Green, which is actually an underground parking garage. At street level The Green is a small park, complete with signpost honoring authors, two story sculptures of stacked books, fish sculptures spotting water for the kids to play in, and lots of flowers.
