Everyday Elevator Connections

recent article in the Khaleej Times saw the author, journalist Anjana Sankar, reflecting on taking the elevator in her apartment each morning on her way to work. The view of Dubai from her 43rd floor apartment is something she loves. Waiting five or more minutes for her elevator is not. However, she notes that while she does not enjoy this step in her routine, there is something unique about elevators. As she writes in her piece:

“It’s not where we are coming from, and not where we are going. We’re all Schroedinger’s cat while we wait, and that gives us a space to talk with our neighbors who we might not ever get to engage with or perhaps even meet. Most of my socialization was limited to this momentary space especially in the COVID times. We may not be able to gather in the places or numbers or ways we want to, but these fleeting moments in lobbies and elevators have connected me to other humans in our orbit.”
