“One of the things I love most about this life is that there’s no final goodbye. You know, I’ve met hundreds of people out here and I don’t ever say a final goodbye. I always just say, ‘I’ll see you down the road’”. — Bob Wells

Whether you consider going nomad or not, life comes at you anyway. Later in life, many decide to embrace their elderhood while others are too busy finding a place to park for the night. It’s sobering to watch Nomadland’s glimpse into America’s peak prosperity where factories close down turning cities into ghost towns. Fern says that something remembered never dies. And in a sense, we become the ghosts after all.
