This morning, I saw this headline on my newsfeed:
NY Governor Andrew Cuomo says it’s important to remember that people are worried and anxious.
It was important to remember to watch Governor Cuomo delivering that message:
It’s also important to remember:
- to be empathic,
- to be mindful,
- to be kind to others and to ourselves,
- to say the important things to those who matter to us, and
- that we’re all quarantined now, in one way or another.
Let’s see if there’s anything important to remember in my quarantined photos from yesterday:
It’s important for me to remember that my cousin Liane Plane was in the original production of West Side Story on Broadway, and that The New York Times thought it was important, too, in one of several articles about Stephen Sondheim’s 90th birthday.
It’s important for me to remember that my friend Jeanette noticed that Liane looks like the dancer emoji💃 in that old photo.
It’s important for me to remember that Liane danced in one of my favorite musical numbers ever, “America,” even though I was too young to see her in it. Here’s “America” from the film version of West Side Story.
It’s important to remember that people will be dancing together again, eventually, in New York and elsewhere.
What do you think is important to remember, here and now?
I hope you remember that I’m grateful to YOU, every day.
