Monday

simply fall in love.


"I fall in love regularly,
with each person whom
passes me in the streets,
or who sits beside me on the bus.
Not in the romantic way;
No, we hardly even speak a word to each other. 
But I sit, quietly observing
all of their body language and
all of their expressions.
Their smiles, and gestures;
the way they lift their coffee, 
or smile as they read that new text message,
or count the change in their hands. 
I watch vigilantly, tracking the
manners and movements,
appreciating all that these
people are.
I spend some time thinking about 
their families and lives,
and the life they lead. 
I consider what they do for work,
and what they went to school for.
When they woke up that morning,
and when they did their hair. 
I study the details of
these people, that they may
otherwise go unnoticed.
Researching each of them,
noting our similarities, and
rejoicing in the beauty of
human nature.
I simply fall in love."

  15. I love this! I spend a lot of time wondering about other people I see around me; how they live day to day, what their job is and the little details about their lives. This describes it perfectly : )

  22. Absolutely beyond beautiful.

    The photograph is lovely, but what really grabs me is the sentiment - so truthful and honest. I think we could all live life a little more fully, in love and appreciative of the things we have.
