A lonely breakfast


I saw this elderly lady having her breakfast at a café in town all by herself early today. She was the only patron and really took her time to eat every morsel in an unhurried fashion. It made me wonder about her life. Do you think she is content with her life?

Yes, she is. People who can eat and taste their food and enjoy the chewing process are satisfied even as a cow is satisfied to chew her cud. This is a remarkable scene.

The photography is very good.

I hope she has family and friends, I hate the thought of old people being alone. My mum is alone in SA! (sniff, sniff)

I felt so sorry for her as she looked forlorn and quite lonely. I also have breakfast on my own, but as a younger person and because I also read, I don't draw much attention.

Thanks for the comments.

I think she looks a little sad, but good on her for treating herself and getting out of the house. I hope she's a well loved lady, but sadly the elderly still become isolated, even if they have family that care but can't be close to them.

rats google ate my comment.... this is a brilliant photo! So much emotion, it touches you to look at it. May I have your permission to use it as inspiration for a painting sometime?
