there’s something extremely intimate while aimlessly watching people. you see them and what they’re doing without their acknowledgement. they continue to do their shopping, talk on the phone, grab their child’s hand etc. without any regard to your eyes swallowing their actions. it’s seems a little intrusive or violating but just watching someone without their knowing really makes them closer to you and you closer to them. it creates a short-lived, but deeply analytical relationship with your world and theirs.
the older you get, the more you appreciate the simple things, the more natural things, the more valuable things and more innocent things
