I stumbled across this CBC podcast today. Urban loneliness is something I've been thinking a fair bit about over the last couple of months. It turns out that Vancouver is infamous for it. You'd think that a city populated by a couple of million people would facilitate inclusion. Apparently we fail horribly at getting to know our neighbours.
This is a good listen. Check it out.
I'm going to make a point of saying hi to people a lot more often.

She sat quietly with a dirty martini
And welcomed us to her empty table for six
Mindlessly flipping pages in her magazine
And eavesdropped on our chat about trips and jazz and love
While we waited for our whiskey to finish
Then, with an eyeful of hope
She gathered her coat,
Touched your shoulder
And said, "Thank you"
