consider those who sleep rough. those who don’t have a home. those who get to experience the full length of a day without distractions of the web-based variety.

and this poor soul gets a few minutes piece because it happens to be pouring with rain and deserted at the time because of it. on a sunny day s/he might have been asked to ‘move along.’
silence… but only by chance…
