Biking home at sunset

Coming home one evening in October, I realized that despite everything that happened, I felt grateful. After being stuck inside for months, I could get out again, I was still in school, I could still study, I could still bike. The air was cold on my skin, but I didn’t want to go home. I wanted to hold onto the feeling for as long as possible. I thought about the other patients, many who can’t speak, or leave their homes or see the light. There are so many others not as lucky. Months later, I’m still grateful every time I bike home. I almost lost these things. I could lose them again, but I have them now and I am savoring that.
