experiencing the city alone we are neither on our own or part of the swarming herds cutting channels through the humdrum flow. In the middle of one world city the illustration of the great divide in life seems to niggle at me. Not rich and poor, immigrant and native, male and female, young and old, but one that sums up all of these divides. The one and the many. How you perceive yourself in this equation (feedback?) of the one and the many may define your experience. To be part of the many is important to us but in typical human contradiction we seemingly desire to be different, to establish our own independence.
