Back to Writing Part VII: Observing

It's back.
If you see me in a sea of people and I'm quiet, I'm composing paragraphs about the people around me. If you watch me closely, you might see my lips moving, forming sentences.
My eyes are soaking in every detail -- the way that woman has tied her scarf, the way that nerdy boy wears his socks with sandals.
I sit in that crowd and do my research. Even if people are crushing in to get closer to Stevie Wonder, even if it's pouring rain, even if I've had a few too many drinks and way too many cookies.
