Urban Loneliness?

seniors

They come down from their apartments to be with others, yet they sit quietly by themselves. They each know that there are others, like them, sitting there, yet they do not make conversation. The markings on the wall show that many heads have rested there. I stand watching, wondering what are they thinking about ~ the past? the future? family?

Is this urban loneliness?

  1. Yes. Or it’s a lack of fishing poles and bait. I am a firm believer in the peace of heart and camaraderie possible while fishing.
