Empty But Holding Space

February 26, 2020 by Comments

It’s 11am in the morning.  I’m visiting a friend in NYC.

I look out the window at this humongously tall apartment building in the vista, and notice that there is not ONE LIGHT, ONE PERSON, any sign of life in this probably 60 foot skyscraper.

What?!?!  Not one of these people work at home?  All I do is work at home! Lights always on, a person always here, life present in the form of humans, animals and plants.

Maybe, I postulate,  I just can’t see beyond the emptiness through the windows of this building.

So I sit for a while hoping to see some sort of life – but there is none.

What a waste I think.  All this beautiful, warm, safe space not being used, taking up a ⅓ of a city block.

I think of all the people on the planet without a warm, safe space to live in.

Kinda hurts my heart.

I try to find some meaning in the situation but nothing comes up for me.

My mind is empty, just like the skyscraper across the street, holding space for when I return.
