This is an image I captured of the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine last year. It is the largest church on Manhattan Island, and the sixth largest in the world. The height above the nave (the central portion of the church) is 177 feet (54 m). The nave itself is 601 feet (183 m) long (in the photo to the left of the altar is a small speck...that’s a person). I just read today that the church nave and even parts of the crypt below will be used as a coronavirus field hospital to care for more than 200 patients. During the pandemic of 1918 the church was not used for this. What an incredibly beautiful thing for this church to do as it would sit empty during the pandemic. I know that there are some of my friends (and social media followers) who have been hurt by the church, and I am sorry for that, but there are churches that do good, really good things. This is an example of it on a grand scale. This said, if you feel the need to make negative comments about churches or religion—and yes I am aware there are plenty of things to be negative about—please just keep scrolling. I truly hope that I do not contract this horrible illness, but if I do I would like to be cared for in this inspirational setting. The article is in the NY Times today (6 April).

I’m still working on a quarantine routine...what is your new favorite quarantine activity? Mine is our family walk in the neighborhood after dinner.
With my normal routine disrupted Instagram hasn’t made it into my day. With SC on a new “work or home” order it looks like I’ll be digging up some old photos to share, creating new ones around the house, and posting at different times...

He takes great care to never upstage the President.
Asking an incredibly profitable bussiness to pay a wage slightly higher than the poverty line while you're working during a fucking global pandemic that's never been experienced in shrooms
Anyones lifetime is too much.

The entire me too movement has always been a politically correct organization. Anyone with a D after their name is exempt.
During this trying time, it's important that we think of things to LOOK FORWARD to! Picture this cozy bedroom at Villa Island Stones and plan to wake up here on a future trip to the Islands!
St. John lovers unite! This is true love for our community and yours! Fritz your the best! You motivated us to really make this happen. Who would have thought that making masks would be a community effort? But if that’s what it takes.... I love my mom and dad and sister and..... I can’t be with them but I wAnt them safe! #hibiscusjazz#stjohn#stjohnfacemask

In times of resilience, we find out who we are. ⠀
#repost from @theamericanfieldtrip⠀
"There are two stories we want to tell about our visit to Virgin Islands National Park in St. John, and I hope we can tell them right so that one doesn’t take away from the other. The first story is that September’s hurricanes wreaked havoc; the worst storms in living memory, Irma whipped through with 215 mph winds, then Maria came and soaked everything with 40 inches of rain. Half the island is still without power and the roads are lined with piles of debris: corrugated tin torn off roofs, branches ripped from trees, downed power lines. The other story is that St. John is, destruction notwithstanding, heart-stoppingly beautiful and filled with the most positive and resilient people we’ve ever met, who are ready for tourists to come back—and if you do come soon, you’ll still enjoy incredible beaches and forest hikes, and you’ll have them almost to yourself."⠀
