Day 10127: Life’s Little Lessons

All alone, absorbed in one’s thoughts, forgetting to look around, smile and enjoy the world passing by. She walks up the street. Head down, eyes neither looking left nor right. Walks straight, never deviating unless someone else walks into her path. Even then, she doesn’t look up. Doesn’t see the smiling baby with a big red balloon, doesn’t see the old man on the street begging for a bite to eat. She hugs herself and shivers from the sudden breeze.
