Sidewalk - Prague: Vaclavske Namesti (April 2004)


Many people walk these streets, as many people walk many streets. Sometimes they all blur together and individuality disappears. It's hard to remember that each one of them has a story. Some of them are having the best day of their lives, while others are having the worst. Whether or not we notice this depends on what type of day we're having ourselves, as well as on what type of people we are ourselves. The rapid passage of time makes it impossible for us to truly care about the individuals we encounter on the street. Or does it really? Does the fact that we are all busy, hard-working people give us an excuse to disregard the plight of others in our society?

No, I don't think it does. I think it just means that we need to be reminded, or at least remind ourselves, more often to pay attention.

lol..i have a feelin that with the amount of compliments i have already forwarded, my compliments are going to lose their effect completely. but for what it's worth, i think this picture and wht you wrote give forth a very interesting perspective. I agree. it doesn't give us the right to disregard what others are going throuh but how can you reach out to someone who is a total stranger?
