Recently, my life changed drastically. I lost my job and my apartment and had to move in with relatives in a more rural area outside of the city. I still look for work every day, but it is incredibly humbling and discouraging. The only peace I can seem to find is at night walking around the neighborhood. No one is out on the street except for the crickets. Most of the homes in the area are just vacation homes and are empty now that the summer season is over. A few have timer or motion lights that go on when I pass. Sometimes I wonder if they really are uninhabited or if someone is really in there.
