Little Things

There are little things I miss.

Chance conversations with strangers in bars. Making small talk with the bartender.

Spontaneity in my day. With or without children, there is none.

Seeing faces, whether smiling or frowning. Happy or sad.

Lunch with friends. Conversations in the hall.

Most of all, the idea that this new normal will end.
