    Wow. I’ve said for almost a year that the one thing that will characterize the return to normality is seeing who’s just not around- there will be missing faces, missing voices. It hit me when I learned last July that the owner of one of my favorite Indian restaurants, an effusive, diminutive Bangladeshi man, had died of COVID. Every time I go back to Swagat, Mohammed’s absence will be palpable.

    As I return to other places, I wonder who just won’t be around.
