Billions

Major cities and their crowd of people remind me of how big our planet is and how many we are living here. We get lost in a sea of humans and go on with our daily grind, but I find it fascinating to pause and observe especially in major avenues of big cities. 

Where are they going? Where are they from? What are their thoughts in that precise moment?

Billions of us and we are suppose to be more connected with each other than before because of our technology but at the same time, I feel people are also even more disconnected then before. Disconnected from the present moment. We keep our head down on our phones. We (me first) dont take time to notice what is unfolding just there in front of us. 

When I am out and about, I always take time to actually look at people, keep my head up, and perhaps make eye contact with someone and just smile.
