I was sitting on the tube this morning. As I looked out the window, I was surrounded by a sea of buildings, concrete and noise. I shut my eyes and took myself back to my home village. Rolling countryside for miles, the sea, the smell of fresh, salty air. Everyone should experience the beauty of this peacefulness at least once in their lifetime. I pity those who use the phrase, 'I have no time to rest'. It isn't rest. It's called appreciation.

... looked at someone and knew what they were doing in life? Is it possible to tell just by looking at someone what they do, what they love, if they're happy or sad, if they're thoughtful or spontaneous, flirty or just friendly?
I was on the tube today and decided to do a spot, of people watching. I love to people watch, I find it is one of my most interesting past times; just watching people and creating my own image of them as a person, even though I have no idea who they are, what they do, or even their age.
I spotted an interesting looking subject today. The subject is male; about 5'10; brown hair; blue eyes; I'd say around mid 30s. He was wearing dark plims, dark blue jeans (slim fit), a red jumper and a brown blazer. For some reason I automatically thought 'musician'. I do not know why that was the first thing that popped into my head but it was, so I went with it. I decided he is a musician and plays the keys in a trio he has been in since he first moved to London at the age of 20. The sort of music they play is acoustic folk, upbeat and cheery. My next thought was that he isn't married but has a girlfriend who he has lived with for more than 5 years. They don't live in a house but an apartment. I did not decide where. He has not been signed to a record label yet, but is in the process of finding one, perhaps the next deal will be the one.
It's interesting to look at someone and almost decide their future for them. Well, their future that is in your world. I do wonder though, if I am correct with this information, if everything I have described here perfectly describes this man. Who knows.
