Paths crossing paths by fourteatwo Paths crossing paths by fourteatwo
I think it's strange how we cross paths with so many people everyday yet we never truly get to know ninety percent of them, if that. It could be through a simple hello in the grocery store, a shared smile while passing or even through a hasty apology for stepping on someone else's feet. It's as if, for that split second, you share one moment in time with a complete stranger and only that stranger, only for them to walk off and for you to never see them again.

It's strange how we're all the same yet so different. Strange how we're all capable of the same emotions, yet still, no one seems to really understand anyone. We're blinded by our own little worlds and sometimes it's the little things that bring us back: orange streaks of light breaking through pale, dusty clouds, candles burning low at night, gentle whispers from the wind or the realization of just how small we really are, looking up at a star-strewn sky.

Okay. I was just about to simply delete the notification telling me you had posted it, but then I looked at the tiny thumbnail and wasn't really sure what the photo was of, so I clicked on it and took a closer look. I'm glad I did, because then I read everything you wrote and experienced some serious wisdom right there. A really obvious thing, but nobody really seems to notice. Then I fell into a profound, thoughtful trance and stared contemplatively at my computer screen.
And now I'm bound and determined to go be creepy-friendly toward strangers.

I've never really stopped to think about that when I'm out with all of these people in public that I'll never see again for the most part. It really is quite interesting... thank you for sharing those lovely words and the amazing photograph ^^

Of course! It's just so weird, right?! I never really noticed it until a few days ago. It just kind of hit me.

It is weird. It makes me wonder how many people we run into everyday but don't think much about it...

Whereabouts was this taken? Looks lovely with the way you've done it...
I've been thinking a lot about how we're blinded by our own little worlds a lot lately, oddly enough.

I found this place in my neighborhood that I've never been to before!
And yes, it is quite fascinating, isn't it?

:O Is it a raised walkway or something (I'm guessing you wouldn't go and lie on a random's verandah XD ).
People used to often talk to me at bus stops. So these strangers would tell me about their lives then get on a bus and I never saw them again. So I'd be left standing there with stories that I didn't know what to do with. It was both sad, yet kinda cool.

yea it's some extended dock thing that's open to all!
And that's so cool! I love learning about others, and about their lives. Sadly, I'm not just that great with talking to people I don't know. I need to change that.

That's pretty awesome! I love finding new corners of a place I thought I almost knew.
:D So do I, though I'm always taken aback by it. I don't usually have to say much, just seem interested (I must have that kind of face XD ).

And instead of not paying attention, I read what you wrote and with that picture I have to admit that I'm truly impressed. I agree with you, and there really is people who think the same way..
Great work.
