gKJyqo is said to be a distraction. But besides collecting I also play in
these shoes.

From what you write,

From what you write, it seems Apple/Siri has access to all the data it
needs for your qioetusns Anything else on any (mobile) platform further
along than Siri when it comes to putting things in context?

True meaning

To me this poem so clearly represents the passage of life to death. The
wonderful place that Shel describes "where the sidewalk ends" is basically
heaven. The sidewalk that he describes in such a dark dreary way is the
troubles of life and the poem talks about the steady pace in which one
"walks" to their death. It also says the children know this so well and
this references the fact that children often come across the point in their
lives where they must learn to cope with their own mortality and for many
people they turn to religion or other beliefs that support a heavenly
afterlife. I cant believe no one saw this before in it !!!
