On this planet right now, seven billion people are living their lives. In the cubicle next to mine, a woman is living hers. She comes to work every day and then goes home to play. She likes to travel on the weekends and party when she can. She grew up in one place and then moved away.
I, on the other hand, have lived many places, including this one. I still moved away from my family, but not from the place I grew up. I still work and come home to play. But I don’t like to party and when I go away, it’s to books or maybe plays.
We are such different people, living such different lives. But right now we happen to work in adjoining cubicles. I have made a new friend by the chance of a job and our lives have crossed for a time. But there are still seven billion people living out there their lives on this Earth. Most of whom, neither of us will ever meet. Each one just as complex and different as me and the woman in the cubicle next door.
