London by Bus

This is the kind of video I wish I made. Beautiful, isn’t it?

It certainly would have given me something to do in the 10 + hours a week I spend commuting by bus.

 

Just Keeping Going

Brought to you by the people at We Are Change, this is honest, beautiful and interesting.

I can *really* relate to this video. Day in and day out I ride the London’s underground and buses alongside millions of other people. Millions of interesting, unique, different and alike, other people. Yet no one says a word. People’s heads go down as though someone has instructed everyone to not appear at all conspicuous or fall outside of the norm. Like a secret, unwritten code.

While this is a symptom of living in a big city, I don’t believe that everyone wants to stay silent and unapproachable. The same way that trains have ‘quiet’ cabins, perhaps the underground needs chatty sections? Or at least areas on the tube where smiling at someone is an OK thing to do.
