Street Art

Mural in Harlem, New York City, as seen from the train’s window.

She reads an old-fashioned book, brimming with anticipation on how the story will unfold, page after page, chapter after chapter, absorbed in every detail. The world around her disappears as she finds herself deeper into the plot, losing herself in the characters. Trains go by day after day, high-rise buildings surround her, the hustle and bustle of the city perpetuates, but she is undisturbed. She sits still in her thoughts, her face lit up with contentment, even her eyes are smiling. It’s as if she already knows the ending.
