Do you ever wonder?

My eyes have been locked for like two seconds with someone who I do not know. I was on my way to the gym, then I saw this old woman. She was nicely dressed. With the way she looked, I'm guessing that she is in her early 60's. We have walk passed each other, but there is just something in her that made me take a second look. And so I looked back to have a glance at the stranger. And when I did, I found her looking at me too. That's strange... And then I began to wonder, what is the kind of life that that old lady is living? And I continued to wonder, "Is she also wondering about what my life is like?" That was an unusual encounter. Did you have any of these encounters?

Perhaps the atoms are in love .. Although she is older, the atoms in her body are as young as yours. I prevent any eye contact with anybody, though, and focus myself on playing mobile phone games .. lol

hey there deepseadolphin. :). I am so comforted by what you wrote that the atoms in her body are as young as mine. I am so thankful to you that you didn't consider the thought it could be my atoms which are as old as hers. LOL. But you know what, you just allow someone to have eye contact with you sometimes. It may feel strange, but most often than not, it feels strange yet comforting. :)

Perhaps you reminded her of someone she once knew? I've often wondered about strangers I see on the street as well. I used to live above a busy street and would sit and watch the cars go by and wonder where each one was headed to and what they were thinking.

This happens at times. However, I do not wonder same as what you wonder. I often wonder where I have seen the person. The best part is none of us make the first move to break the ice.
