As I was driving home from work tonight I noticed an elderly couple walking down the street together. It was late. They were holding hands. I don’t know what they were doing or where they were coming from but I liked the fact that they were out and about on a Saturday night. I thought about all the Saturday nights they must have spent doing things together.
A few blocks down the street a wedding party was lined up outside Scholz Beer Garten. Everyone was holding sparklers as the bride and groom walked out. A horse and carriage waited for them.
As I approached the stoplight I saw a Favor delivery guy on the sidewalk looking lost, holding a pizza.
At that moment life felt like that SimCity video game. We’re all just in our places. We’re all just trying to build the best life we can for ourselves while making money and maintaining our happiness.
