So, I noticed this fellow starbucker who came in, sat down, and simply stared into space … for nearly three hours!
And no, I did not notice this by staring at him for three hours.
At first I thought, what’s wrong with the guy? I mean, I could never do that. Just sit and stare for so long…
Then, i thought: Gee, I could never do that…what a shame.
Motive for staring
Is it depression? drugs? Stupidity? A total lack of initiative?
But, how do I know? Maybe it’s not a negative thing at all. Maybe it’s meditation. Or prayer. Or maybe the guy has mastered the fine art of just chillin’?
And, hey, I could sure use some chillin’. It’s definitely not something I do much of, right? So…
So i decided to admire the guy.
And then i got promptly back to my work on my laptop.
