Daily Prompt: In Transit
Train stations, airport terminals, subway stops: soulless spaces full of distracted, stressed zombies, or magical sets for fleeting, interlocking human stories?
Sitting at the airport working on my newest blog entry, listening not to the canned music that’s being piped in all over the place, instead I’ve got my favorite cd in: Il Divo and I’m just chillin, watching the people go by, wondering where they are going and where they’ve been….some dressed in business clothes others in casual clothes, each with their own thoughts and feelings as they come and go.
It’s funny I will most likely never see any of these people again but somehow at this very moment, in this space and time we have all managed to cross each others paths without even realizing that we ever existed.
Some I find handsome, others are funny and some are just plain scary looking and each of them different in the way they dress, the way they walk, but somehow we still cross paths on this day. I wonder would any of us have been friends or enemies or maybe in a romance if our paths had crossed at some other point and time…am I the only person that thinks like this I wonder…crazy I know.
I sit here with a secret smile on my face and some of those who pass look and smile back as if they know my secret also, and others just keep walking afraid to make a connection. I sit here typing into my laptop wondering, sipping a semi decent cup of coffee and just let my mind float….thinking not just of the people that I see here but wondering how they would react if I shouted out a hello or just ran up and kissed the first cute guy I saw, how would these other beings that have been created react if I did one of a million crazy things….shock, giggles, or outright laughter.
These things I wonder as I watch them come and go, young, old, babies, children, what will they become, do they live a good life, do they have some dark secret they hold onto, that burns into their soul day and night?
These things I wonder and ponder upon as I sit here sipping my coffee and smiling my secret smile.
