I recently began taking the LA Metro in 2017 as a means to save money on gas, parking and parking tickets.
The wonderful side effect was the opportunity to slow down and experience my diverse city in ways I never had before.
Through the neural network that is the Metro I've been able to witness a very lonely city. In a city of 4 million people there's no shortage of lonely souls getting from point A to point B.
Community will still spring up from time to time. Whether it's over a clever t-shirt, a herd of baby goats or the sharing of illicit drugs there's no boring trip on the Metro.
