a window seat to life

By February 6, 2006General

I must admit something … I like sitting by the window when working at a coffee shop. This afternoon, I’m doing some adminstrative stuff at Cosmos in La Mesa. Just outside the window is La Mesa Boulevard. It’s always interesting to take a moment’s break and watch people walk by — especially those who don’t know you’re watching. Without the benefit of sound, I play a little game trying to figure out what they’re talking about. I sometimes do the same thing with the television — it’s a good little exercise.

I believe most people don’t either use or train their powers of observation. We simply let life roll by without noticing much of what happens.

It really is amazing what you notice when you start paying attention!
