Good Perspective

"I had become very good at being on my own. Now, suddenly, I see myself everywhere." Author, Glynnis MacNicol, whom we spoke with about her book No One Tells You This, wrote a beautiful piece on living alone right now for the New York Times

Some Good News 

John Krasinski (Jim!) launched a homemade show on YouTube, covering only good news "for an incredibly trying time" but... "somehow the human spirit seemed to break through". Steve Carell was his first guest, and the Hamilton cast was his second—everything we never knew we needed.

Good Cheer

Every night at 7pm EST NYC-ers cheer for frontline healthcare and essential workers. It's beautiful and uplifting.
