Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Hope you have a wonderful time!
So today's ramble: Any observers out there?
Usually when I'm in the subway or train, my mind drifts of and I watch the people sitting or passing by. From my family I'm the only who does this, my sisters are usually looking at me like this -_-, when I tell them stories of what I saw/heard outside. Yes some may call it staring and stalking though...I prefer observing and analyzing. It has a sophisticated ring to it ^_^. I use the ideas I get for drawings and for my stories. Or I just randomly tell them in a conversation to someone. Like this one time, an old dude sneeze so hard that I thought his glasses flew away. Really, if you weren't awake till that point...The Sneeze would've made sure you were clutching your bag in fear and looking around in panic. The Sneeze has that effect on people...you know I will make a sketch of that! The Sneeze.
This other time there was another dude screaming random things like "Horse! Central Station! Willem Alexander (that's the prince of Holland)! What does he have to do then?!" then he would spit several times on the ground and add a few curse words here and there before he started to sing Whooeeee....maybe it were a hidden messages...I don't know. Too late to find out now though.
Oh and another time there was a guy who had an imaginary phone and he was really talking to it! His hand I mean. He had a whole conversation with this other dude or lady. I don't know. Also there is ( I still see her quite often...) a lady who kinda gives me the creeps, because she just has a blank stare and she just keeps staring...and she has big eyes...
I also often caught people at staring when I looked up when I'm walking around. Don't ask me why I suddenly look up while I'm walking. Sometimes I just do, perhaps that's why I trip so every now and then...
Just a quick doodle:
Either way, it occurred to me one day that I'm not the only one who observes people. You might think "Duh!! You're not the only one walking this planet -_-!" But you know I got out of that bubble where I thought that I rule the world and where no one knows that I observe people for my own doodles and storytelling hehe.
So while I think that I'm observing someone, another person can observe me. It's only logical. So there you have it; The observer is being observed.
*pop* *pop* *pop*
Right...sorry if I burst someone's bubble where he/she thought that he/she was exclusively observing the world, but I just wanted to share this with you guys ^_^.
Have a lovely day and take care everyone!
