The candidates were mid-debate when Doppler started barking. Unusual. I called out to Helaine to see if she needed help.
The next thing I knew Helaine was racing to my studio. There was someone at the door. It’s football day. We are appropriately attired for football not people.
I opened the door and there stood my neighbors and their children. They’d made cards and posters and they wanted to wish me well.
I started to cry.
“We moved to this area specifically because there were going to be kids. With kids there’s life,” I said.
This was a genuinely super sweet moment. I’m crying again.
