One person’s emptiness is another’s bliss. Isn’t it always like that.
I biked up to the Law School and was immediately reminded how it feels on Bascom Mall during the summer.
Where is everyone?
A small group takes to the green space and plays croquet. Croquet?? One person’s emptiness is another’s bliss…
The day was so beautiful and it was so lost on me. Preoccupied, busy, call it what you want. I was not outside except to bike to and from my office.
Until, finally, just before sunset, I went outside just to look and smell. There’s only a parking lot there, before my loft. But at the side, there are small lilacs.
The butterfly and I chased each other for while. Until finally he relented and let me take a photo.
After, he laughed and flew away and I went back to an empty-feeling loft.
