The poor, the rich, the in-between can all be found in common places. Those spaces where they go to eat, drink, shop, put fuel in their vehicles, go to work, worship and that sort of thing. Common places are great equalizers and hopefully gives us perspective on our daily life. Without those common places we might not commune with one another. Social circles don’t always intersect. Sure there are surprises but they are few and far between. Observing our patterns of existence can be fascinating and eye-opening. Maybe while we are in those common places we can share a common cup of whatever we need to get us through this life.
