    There is an overpass I used to go by on the way home from work where this was always the scene in winter.

    A sad scene….but at least in joining together they share some warmth.

    A beautifully rendered American sentence, Toni! I agree with Bjorn .. the grittier the better ❤️

    The linkup between Ed’s quote and your sentence is profound. The cold is probably so much easier to take while flying…

    I like your reminder of how the cold must feel to some.

    This scene is familiar from living in London; we don’t see it out here in the country. They remind me of penguins.
