recently I gave up my smartphone which was sucking up my attention. I want to connect with the real world. but it turns out train rides are really awkward without a smart phone. today on the millennium line at commercial station... not only is it a cold thursday and everyone wants to go home, but the train was delayed. the train was packed but nobody was talking, not a soul. ISN'T THAT SORT OF STRANGE? are we, as a city, really that insular and disconnected? I know it's the norm here, but if you've been anywhere else, you know this isn't normal. it's strange. I grew up here, and even I find this a strange thing. where's the warmth, sadness, flirtation, excitement?
