Sunday Plans

No one knows who the solitary man smoking a cigar in this paintings by Edward Hopper titled  “Sunday”  was, but for many viewers he embodies the ennui of a Sunday morning. Painted  in 1926, the work has often been seen as symbolic of isolation and disconnection in the American city.

    Johnny Cash sings his own song: Sunday Morning Sidewalks:
    “On a Sunday morning sidewalk I’m wishing Lord that I was stoned
    Cause there’s something in a Sunday makes a body feel alone
    And there’s nothing short of dying half as lonesome as the sound
    On a sleepy city sidewalk Sunday morning coming down.”

    Hear it on Youtube: https://youtu.be/SPiSYVLFCM8.
    Tear your heart out, it’s so melancholy.
