acidental evesdropping on a tree fort bus.
I spend hours listening to strangers talk. conversations overheard like so many bits of washed up treasure from a shipwreck. conversations about who's in jail, who got out, who needs work. babies,heartbreak and heroism. these bits of conversation float past my ears and I pretend not to hear the secrets of strangers lives. The bus seems like a tree fort on wheels. A place to share your secrets, make new friends and catch up on old ones. the essential values of community can be learned on a bus ride to anywhere.
