living in a shadow


Imagine a city without trees, where concrete and tar turn apartment blocks into ovens. Imagine a city without sky, where you can’t tell the weather without watching TV. Imagine a city where parking lots are the only parks, where pigeons are the only birds, where everyone spends their whole lives indoors. Now stop. Look out your closest window: do you see a tree? Do you see sky or something green and alive? Good. Now turn off your computer, go outside and play.

  1. Ha, yasser, you’re quick off the mark this morning! Thanks for your comment — what I wrote is a reminder as much for me as anyone. I spend way too much time indoors in front of the computer… like now, for example… must get outside. Now! 🙂
