FROM THE GOOD TRADE
How To Enjoy Being Alone
I was lingering in the doorway of the yoga studio on Sixth Ave the other day, slowly putting on my socks and sneakers, when I overheard a man, probably about 30, tell his friend the details of an upcoming trip he was taking. He was going on a two-week tour of New Zealand from north to south in order to take advantage of unused vacation days that he’d accumulated over the year. He had planned the trip on his own and was planning to execute it as such. His girlfriend, apparently, couldn’t get time off. What I thought, as I listened, was that herein lies the boundless power of finding joy in doing things alone.

PETS OF THE WEEK
Rowdy is a Toy Australian Shepherd who is 2 years old, and originally from a farm in Missouri. He took his first plane ride and moved to the Big Apple in 2021 and currently lives at home with his mom and dad.
He is the best boy who loves cuddles, walks, treats, and tearing apart boxes. He helps with house chores such as, cleaning up crumbs, dragging grocery delivery bags from the front door to the kitchen, un-fluffing pillows, and provides 24/7 love.
Rowdy is not a fan of baths, vacuums, or skateboards — he believes the world is better off without them. His words, not ours. He enjoys the occasional pup cup and visiting his friends at the dog park.
Current status: napping (with mr. duck).
