Are you happy?

Nowadays I am mostly just tired.
Trying to be happy does that to me.
And pseudo-intellectual conversations.
Or any other kind, for that matter.
Conversations I mean.
Including my own thoughts.

I would rather sit and observe.
In a crowded room.
The snippets of conversations vying for attention.
Some more desperate than others.
Trying to hide in nooks and corners. Just when you are about to make sense out of them.
Crescendos. Rising and falling.
Shamelessly pimping themselves.

Aah. This is nice. This hide and seek.
Moving across a room with the eyes following the thoughts.
(Or is it the other way around?)
A frown here and there.
Trying to catch up.
With the cool breeze and the few drops of rain sliding over the glass windows.
Or the smoke clawing at the ceiling, in desperation. Trying to get away.
Sometimes it is beautiful.
This game.

It makes me smile to myself.

And just smiling to myself is enough for now.

Oh, I love this! Because you've captured the spirit of a room of people discoursing. There are the obervers, there are those so engrossed in themselves, and those who exchange. Your point of view was very interesting, and nicely said! Loved it!

Thank you so very much for commenting on "Eve's Got Mail" on whose role... It was much fun. The winners are Diane Keaton, Cary
Grant, and Bette Midler. I hope
you enjoy "Winner, winner, chicken
dinner." Have a wonderful weekend!
And am looking forward to the results on Bubble Talk and Double Talk! Petra

Morning here, evening there? Was wondering if the results were posted and where I would find them?
*laughing* Am really looking forward to the outcome. Oh, and if you'd care, there's a new script,"Where's Nessy?" A new one is posted weekly. Is your name mentioned anywhere on your blog, or is it that it's just so early in the morning is why I can't find it. :)) Hope to hear from you about the results, and have a wonderful day! Petra :))
