Where are they going, all these passengers sitting on the train lost in their own thoughts? Who are they? What kind of lives do they lead? Each one has a story, a life, a set of priorities and concerns. Some are young, other not so young, each at a particular age and stage of life. Some are regulars. I see them every day. Their faces are as familiar to me as some of the people I work with. Yet we never speak or even make eye contact. We simply notice each other, strangers passing on the busy stage of life.
