    Here I am - or was

    I sat down
    outside in the sun. Billions
    of people passed by
    on this and other streets
    in other towns, by day
    and by night and some
    sat down, but none sat
    where I was sitting
    so long as I sat there.

    The Prince yet lives! It's good to know you have a place and that it is yours alone, inviolate, and un-usurped - at least, for as long as you occupy it...

    Live and be well - H

    I agree. Your space. Your time and here you are!

    Good to read you again! Concise and tells loads... but why "was" and not "were"?

    Hope you're doing fine, Prince,

    Drishat shalom,

    Just getting ready for bed. Read your letter and loved it but am too sleepy to give it the reply it deserves. You can always reach me at [email protected]

    Prince! I thought you left for good. This calls for a celebration! Cheers *clink*

    And thus spake the Prince! It is wonderful to see these flakes of your observation again.

    Like it! After you've left, it will still be always be the spot where you sat. Makes me think about Whitman's crowds passing over the Brooklyn Bridge. You are the absence of all of us ... keep sitting...
