“The dream is to go back. The nightmare is that we never can. During quarantine, I had to make a trip to the grocery store. I met an elderly man who struck up a conversation with me. We almost seemed to be kindred spirits. He began the conversation with “Life is hard when you outlive all the ones you love.”
“It seemed like a bit of a quick start to a conversation, but I could tell he just needed someone to talk to. After talking for a while, I felt this sense that he had that the world at large had forgotten about him. But, he had created a plan to travel the world on a train he had read about. He could work on the train and it would take him across the world. He was amidst planning his way out. “songbird” was a direct inspiration from that moment. This idea of life after all that you love and care for is gone. His story resonated with me in the way that I feel from COVID taking away so many small businesses – so many dreams from all of us. But what do we do now? Where do we go from here? “songbird” hopes to take you to a place of hope amidst a looming dark shadow cast over the world, ” Paul insightfully explains.
