City people; we are hasting between coffee shops, clubs and busy sidewalks, in the middle of everything, with our shiny Instagram feeds, always in a swarm.
Until we enter out tiny apartments and step into lonesomeness, behind closed doors, where we leave something of us behind and enter another world, wether or not we want to.
Here, in the darkness of our own thoughts, something is catching up with us again that was hidden within the sparkling world outside.
