Well hello! I am happy to see you again
Today, for the first time in seems like forever, the majority of my fellow commuters on the inbound E, were NOT on their phones! Of course a good many were, but fewer.
How pleasant and peaceful. After so long, finally once again to be with the strangers around me. Some resting, some gazing off to the middle nowhere place of thoughts, dreams, and worries, a couple in quiet conversation.
It has been so long.
Today, surrounded by a thousand rocks and islands, I felt like I had come back home for a moment, come to say hello to my many old friends from the town where I grew up.
