I believe that my personal experience in my landscape and Nescio’s both heavily rely on the time of day we were both outside. Nescio only had time to take his walks at night because he’s stuck inside all day at a job he hates, so when he does take a walk it’s very late at night when most people are sleeping. The atmosphere of walking along the empty streets at night with nothing to do but think can cause more melancholy thoughts. Him and his friends feel more separate from society and misunderstood and it’s highlighted by the empty hard city streets. I took a walk down the Capital Crescent trail and I felt alone in a completely different way. The trail seemed never ending and the dense canopy of trees seemed to engulf me. I was also out during the day so I focused more on the scenery and was overwhelmed by the thrumming and movement of nature. I was surrounded by a constant sense of life, unlike Nescio and his friends who felt the coldness of the city and their lives leak into them from the limestone.
