Musings of Mine
Quote of the day:
I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.
1. The Watcher
I watch people.
I imagine things in my head about them. Instinctively, the first being their origin. I try to piece together their faces, hair texture, and accent. And then I start with my guessing game. If I happen to overhear their name though, it cuts the game time down considerably. If not, things get more interesting. Different people with different faces. We all walk past one another each day, like ants scrambling around for food.
In the end when my eyes connect with someone, those two seconds of silent stillness...if time was slowed down to a sort of slow motion replay, two seconds may end up being like eternity.
2. Nails of Steel
Do you ever have that feeling about your nails growing longer for no reason? One minute its all cut nicely and trim, and the next its all grown back- like weeds springing forth in the most unlikely places.
What use is of these fingernails and toenails, except to scratch one's back and itchy regions of the body. What use are they, if not to peel off annoying things or have people ask you for help -just because: "you've got long nails, can you assist with peeling off this label please?".
3. Ringtones & Drones
A ringtone says a lot about one's personality. Especially the volume at which it is set. If its too loud, and you don't have hearing problems -you are impassioned and insensitive. This personality mirrors other things. In my mind's eye I can picture this clearly, like a drone flying with precision. A man in a notable outfit makes a show of answering his phone, gesturing with his manicured fingers and conversing in a loud voice. Ten feet away I look on as he gets into his car and drives off with loud music blaring. The torment of his ringtone, fading into insignificance.
