“We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men; and among those fibers, as sympathetic threads, our actions run as causes, and they come back to us as effects.” ― Herman Melville
I decided once again to go off on another tangent as far as this week’s photo challenge is concerned.
These days we seem to be physically connected to one another via steel cables, wooden platforms , spaghetti stranded lengths of copper wires and the other infringing tentacles of modern living.
Sometimes we want to shuck this barrage of physical impediments and escape for a brief period of time to a safe haven where we can think, relax, unwind and enjoy the day.
The cyclist in this photo must have had that very same escape plan in mind. For roughly 30 minutes he sat quietly on the wooden steps of this school and chatted peacefully with unseen friends.
Taking a break from it all but still connected to those important people in his life.
