People Watching

Do you ever "people watch?" I was doing that today. One of my classes was cancelled. I still had to go to my last class. So I had 2 hours to spare. I sat in the Student Union Building just watching people.

Everyone was so busy. Rushing around. People shoveling food in their mouths. I swear, 90% of those people don't even taste their food! They reminded me of ants. All in a rush. Moving around. All with their set paths. Not looking beyond their routes. Not looking left or right. Just busily going on their way!

Do you ever wonder if people just stop to breath? Or look around them? I do. I also wonder exactly where all these people are going. Now I know how someone can see you, and you don't notice them. But isn't that what people do? Get a schedule and a route. And just live by it.

Something about watching all these people, made me think. I want to start looking around. Noticing all those little things that I don't pay attention to. Because I am usually too busy to notice. Take some time, and enjoy the things around you! ~Kate the Great

Very nicely put, I have enjoyed people watching in the past and have to admit that I have not done it for a long time. You made me think about things I have not done for so long. And about how I seem to hurry around now. I think it is time to slow down and enjoy that cup of coffee and people watch again.
