not too long ago i was sitting at panera waiting for a friend for tea.
i went early to write and ended up next to a table of older people just shootin' the breeze.
i'm pretty good at tuning people out - a fine art i learned in school -
so i did tune these guys out. but before i did, i caught a bit of their conversation.
and the feeling of their group.
i wrote about it.
and then, again, later, i found myself near a similar group and i thought of this piece.
thought i'd post it here to remind us of who we want to be.
or who we don't want to be.
she could see it -
a huge black cloud over top of them.
they made it bigger and bigger with each angry judgmental thing they said.
ohhh - a flash of lightning -
not the pretty kind -
the angry kind -
just crashed over his puffy face.
no wonder they sat hunched and walked stiff and slow -
they had to hold a lot of gunk inside them.
really really made me think about what i wanted to talk about with people
and how i wanted to do that.....and why i wanted to do that......
good stuff to keep in mind.
