and one more thing...

chi coupleIt is so easy to be alone in a modern American city. I have this interesting idea that has been floating around my head for a while. I envision some far away bazaar type affair with people bustling and interacting then I envision an American city… Mostly empty streets and if the street is occupied it is by cars not by pedestrians.

Interesting maybe only to myself… I enjoy the contrast of my previous mindset: “wow it is so empty out, where is everyone?” to my current: “wow, everyone is out… but inside of a car”. I am not sure if this makes sense but on some visual level it does to me. Strange that just by choosing a car instead of a bike to get around most Americans will never have the chance to meet some of the greatest people around.

Then again… We always have public transit as an option don’t we? (maybe not)
