There is something electric about being in community spaces, public spaces and gathering places when they are active. And there is something quietly contemplative about being in these spaces during a hushed moment of solitude. To me, they are not truly silent or empty when I have them to myself in these moments. The spaces still hum a little bit with the impressions and footsteps left by other people. They still faintly hold the energy.
As I stand in the fresh, rain scented breeze and embrace the solitude and contemplate the silence, I do not feel lonely or alone.
