I am running late for work. I am only two blocks away but I am sweating profusely. I am furious with myself for missing the first train because I decided to take a 45 minute nap. I am broken because I cannot be productive no matter what I do. How can I carry on like this? Only one block now.
“We’re almost there, sweetie,” a woman says to her baby daughter as I pass.
This is enough to keep going.
