The ever-playful Lily took a break from annoying Court–and Court took a break from BEING annoyed–so they could curl up together for a nap. The world may feel like it’s falling apart, but it’s still full of moments of peace. And those moments will sustain us.

We all know that the world’s turned upside down and that many businesses have closed their doors.
