There's something magical about doing something at the same time as a large crowd. Clapping at the end of an incredible Broadway play. The first few strides at the beginning of a race. Singing with strangers while waiting for the next subway. Laughing at a joke together in a movie theater. Rising in the stands of Yankee Stadium after a homerun. There's a powerful feeling of togetherness that happens in those types of moments, a feeling that Marina Keegan called the opposite of loneliness. I miss that feeling of being in a crowd when greatness happens and getting to celebrate it together.
