Signs of Life in a Big city

Humans are hardwired to look out for signs. A sign of danger, a sign of opportunity, a safe place to rest, and a sign that points us in the right direction so we can arrive at our destination on time.

Make your way around any city of the World and you’ll see lots of signs to guide you on your way.

Red lights make us Stop and look. Green lights make us Go.

One night I was headed back home. It was late, 05.30 am in the city, a weekend and the streets were empty of cars and buses. Nobody around. I came to a red light that indicated I must stop and wait. I knew I should wait. I stood hoping that it’ll change its opinion pretty soon, and let me Go with a green sign.
