Strange Indeed

An old man is on his way home. He uses a walking stick to help him with his injured knee. In his other, free hand, he carries a small plastic bag. Today’s dinner is half a chicken and two loaves of bread, much better than last night, but still not enough to feed seven mouths. Maybe he’ll have to work a couple of extra hours on a daily basis after all.

A young boy is clicking and typing on his computer. After three months, he doesn’t have to worry about money for the rest of his life.

We live in a strange world, people.

    • Luck + Internet, my dear friend. Everyday we hear of a new celebrity, movie maker, or software developer coming out of nowhere, and rising to the highest degrees of success. I can’t think of anything wrong with it. But I also can’t shake the feeling that there is something a little bit off about it, like the balance of the universe is being disturbed or something. 😀
