Isaac “Drift” Wright, 2020


I remember it find it irresistible turned drift watch  into the day gone by, ice clinging to the ladder I become climbing, my breath escaping in the front of me as I moved better into the night time. I turned into atop the tallest building in New Jersey making ready to watch dawn over the best metropolis within the world. The sun got here silently alongside purple, orange, red and blue clouds. The town that never sleeps become taking its first breath. An eerie silence pervaded the air, a signal of what changed into to come back. Within a month, COVID-19 might carry the arena to its knees, New York City protected. Can you feel the emptiness within the air? Can you feel the silence? I can. This turned into the beginning of the cease, the ultimate dawn I’d see and photo I’d take earlier than life changed all the time. Will we ever get better? I guess handiest time will tell.
