There is little that David posts that I don’t find fantastic. Ok, I think all of his posts are fantastic. This one however really needs as wide an audience as it can find. Happy Friday..

Live & Learn


n. the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own—populated with their own ambitions, friends, routines, worries and inherited craziness—an epic story that continues invisibly around you like an anthill sprawling deep underground, with elaborate passageways to thousands of other lives that you’ll never know existed, in which you might appear only once, as an extra sipping coffee in the background, as a blur of traffic passing on the highway, as a lighted window at dusk.

  1. Good choice to repost. I know what I’ll be thinking about today. Thanks, for waking up the senses with these beautiful words. What isn’t written here may ultimately be as powerful as what is. Have a great Friday, Mimijk, and an even better weekend celebrating Matt’s birthday with family.xoxoxo

    1. Thank you love – Matt is busy with finals this weekend, so we are going to catch up some time next week. I too thought this post was fantastic – and a worthy, beautifully state perspective that we often forget. And – I learned a new noun! xoxoxo

    1. Me too!! And when I was a kid, my dad and I would make up stories about the people who lived in the houses we would pass (in the car, on the street)…xox

  2. Thanks for sharing. There have been times when I have stopped and really thought about this and looked around and noticed what people were doing, going, saying. Those times have been imprinted on my memory. Interesting that those single moment shots are still there for me and the other millions of moments are gone forever.

    1. It’s overwhelming in many ways isn’t it? I have created stories about people I see since I was a little kid, knowing full well that their realities were probably far different from the banal fantasies I would make up. Millions and millions of stories and people that pass in and out of our days – incredible..
