No man is an island

No man is an island

“No man is an island
No man stands alone”

In this swirling sea of colours as people were rushing purposefully to their destinations, one man caught my eye.  It was the contrast in the clothes he wore compared to the people around him.  The dullness of the colours.  By the simple act of dressing differently was he trying to distance himself from the crowd around him?  Sometimes we would like to believe that we can stand alone but the reality is that no man is an island.

  1. Very nice – as for the ‘no man is an island’ notion, it has always seemed way too patriarchal a saying –
    I prefer ‘no human is an island, but like islands, we are all like mountains sharing the same root’ – be well and safe
