I clicked this, with my phone, from the dashboard of my car. I am driving up the street, just getting started on my morning commute to work. As I paused at a normally busy four-way stop, I noticed how uncommonly devoid of children my surroundings were. Usually all the kids in the neighbourhood are on their way to school as I embark on my morning drive. On this morning, as it will be all week, things are very, very quiet.
March Break is upon us.
I imagine all the kids missing from my photograph are all still snug in their beds, enjoying their time off.
My drive through the streets to the highway is a lonely one…
