    Human Behavior

    I have excellent skills at reading people in person. I can instantly spot deceit by fake or weak bodily expressions. I never reveal what I know, I simply keep it to myself. Did you know that the most important part of another's body to read...

    Laid Back

    I am a laid back type of person. I like things to flow as they are, and watch things pass me by. Life might pass you by, but it will be waiting for you when your return.

    Once, I saw a Rolls Royce Phantom parked

    outside a garden. A street dog passed by and stopped at the car's rear wheel. He sniffed at it like it was beef, after which he peed on the car and went his way. I like dogs, they understand that you cannot eat a car and so it isn't a necessity.

    My brain never stops.

    I am constantly aware of everything around me. I notice the smallest changes within a group of people, I can tell when someone's mood changes, I can hear a conversation across the room, I can completely feel the 'energy' (I sound like a hippie) of a group of people or in a room...

    You are interesting. I see the unsung small

    things, the scraps that make you so big in the mirror. You have a tell-tale imprint on my heart. I trace the things you take for granted about yourself. There is wonder in small things, often overlooked. You have my attention. I take an impressionist snapshot of you for my album...
