Mad World

This took me back to cold, overcast Autumn days when I would climb the mountains west of Denver and sit for a while, looking out over the city, clutching a warm thermos of coffee between my hands. I'd watch my breath form clouds of vapor in the crisp dry air and sit in wonder at how so many souls could live so close together and yet be strangers to one another.

This is a great video and this is also so true, I think I have like the words are describing here.. Sad and strange at the same time...

Thanks for sharing..

Awesome video...very true. Especially in a big city...but sometimes it's easier to be a stranger, isn't it?

Blessings

I know what you mean, Anon. Purely by coincidence, somebody sang this song in my church a few weeks ago. It left a sad vibe hanging in the air; the whole crowd seemed to turn inward after hearing it. But for me, the song still speaks to something true about being human...it helps me to connect with that sense of "separateness" we all feel, not to wallow in it, but to honestly look for ways to move toward authentic connection with others.
