She doesn't mean you.
I love my long commute.1
Here I am, trying to get that feeling, while seated on a wooden chair in this room, surrounded by dusty paper boxes and old newspapers.
Not striding down busy streets, dodging the off-to-work crowd during the mad morning rush hours.
Not rounding corners of magnificent skyscrapers, admiring slightly elongated reflections from tall, meticulously-cleaned glass windows.
Not watching the world go by, as shadows fly and lines whiz past in a burst of colours.
Not strolling under the bright, twinkling stars, in the coolness of a beautiful summer’s night.
Not observing, not listening, not looking.
Apparently it can be very much easier if your name also happens to be Chris Martin.
But if you close your eyes and imagine it all, you might just! be able to get that feeling.
And, well, I want that badly. Like, now.
Am I getting there?
