London, ON, February 2012
About this photo: Thematic explores the "past its prime" theme this week. To participate, just head here.A simple sign taped to a shattered window facing a downtown street signals a not-so-simple story that I found myself wishing I knew. Somewhere, someone's dreams of making a go of it here had been dashed. Somewhere, someone else was working toward making another set of dreams come true. Intersecting stories of failure and hope, both hinted at on this poignantly presented slip of paper.
We can choose to read words. Or we can choose to read the untold stories that lurk between them. How would you read a story like this?
