Scribbled Observation #854


With my notebook
across a coffeeshop
from a kid
writing in his notebook
noticing him
noticing my daughter
as she walks by
not noticing him
looking back down
writing in his notebook
about her
as I write in mine
about him

  1. How true of a parent! Teenagers are strange creatures. I like this bit of ...whimsy? regret at your daughter's growing up?

  4. That is so great. Look at your keen powers of observation and your ability to take that to the next step. I saw this one on Facebook as well and just adore it. Oh those youngsters. Great work Babyluv!!

  6. This is a great observation... the observation of the observer make me think of looking into opposing mirrors a bit.

  7. So true this. Your parent's radar is ever ready to collate more data :)

  8. We are taken up just as much as them. At least they notice a pretty girl instead of poring only over their hand-sets. I's a healthy thing Marian!

  9. Wonderful observation, Marian. I wonder what it was he wrote in his notebook. I'm pleasantly surprised it was a notebook and not a mobile phone.

  12. Love it. Marian. Not yet love though the buds are there. Different ages for different kids, genes and environment play big here.
    You're a GOOD MOM. As we said to our motorcycle passenger, (you) HANG ON!

  13. Life is a circle of stories... about people.

    Love this glimpse of living.
