On this breezy October morn, I walk
in the swift shadows of cloud-cursing rooks,
watching the world wake on the horizon.
Leo Yankevich
All houses wherein men have lived and died
Are haunted houses. Through the open doors
The harmless phantoms on their errands glide,
With feet that make no sound upon the floors.

We meet them at the doorway, on the stair,
Along the passages they come and go,
Impalpable impressions on the air,
A sense of something moving to and fro.

    The dictionary defines it as meaning 'in spite of' (like in your example), or despite, regardless of. "Notwithstanding his many activities, Alan finds time to be a dedicated husband and father" @sazidmahmud31.
