It's funny how during our day to day lives, we pretend we are all in our own little worlds and completely disconnected from one another. But are we really?

During my bus journey this morning, as I was reading a magazine, I heard a passenger two seats in front speaking on her mobile phone.

"Boy, she's loud!" I thought to myself.

When the woman finished her conversation, she turned round and apologised for sounding so loud. She said she'd left her 10 year old daughter at home with her father and she'd been trying to call her but she wasn't answering her mobile. She said she got really concerned and was about to get off the bus and return home. That's why her voice was raised.

"It's OK," I said.

Aha, so you did hear me then!

We are one!
