somewhere in the world

in the world somewhere, right now, someone is pouring a coffee in a hotel lobby in an island town waiting for the sun to come up, thinking about how someone in the world, at the exact same time, is making tea before bed on a warm night in the countryside.

and somewhere else, someone is waiting for a train in a busy city to get dinner with the girl he is breaking up with while the girl is putting mascara on across town thinking about how her brother is bartending in los angeles and how the open invitation she never thought she would want to use suddenly seems like the best idea.

and no matter what you are doing right now, and whether or not you are happy with it, it is oddly comforting to think that any life you have ever dreamed of having exists, and someone else is living it.
