Patience and Fortitude

Like so much else, the New York Public Library is shut down. I miss going there to do my playwriting, especially the beautiful Rose Reading Room at the main branch. Flanking the entrance to that gorgeous building are two stone lions. During the Great Depression Mayor Fiorello La Guardia gave them names that he felt reflected the qualities New Yorkers needed to get through the challenging times. Patience and Fortitude. We need those qualities now to get through these challenging times. I miss those lions. Hang in there. Patience and Fortitude.
