Strangers And Crowds

I've noticed a shift in my thinking about people.

I recently moved from a small town to a larger town. In the small town, I knew quite a few people, if not by name then at least by their place in the community, tellers, clerks, etc. In the larger town I know virtually no one.

The shift is I'm a lot more suspicious of people the fewer of them I know. I'm starting to blend in as a nameless, faceless person myself.

I've gone from fairly well known to a stranger. And it feels very strange. Not pleasant.
