Abstract: Andrew Wyman
These ashtrays, outside of the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment building, gave me a lot to think about today. What pressures are these smokers are facing? Are these smokers unemployed and looking for work? Are they people who have been injured on the job and seeking workman’s compensation? Or, are they simply government workers employed at this building?
I pass this building at least once a day. I pass by it oblivious to what’s happening in these people’s lives. I’m usually listening to music and concerned with my own worries of the day. If I were to step back and look at the world in an abstract way maybe I could help to make a real difference in the world.
