    Best Day Of The Year

    I think that Christmas Eve is the best day of the year to go out and people watch. If you are brave enough to head out on December 24th, you can see people at their best - or far more likely at their worst. I've seen grandmother's get in fist fights at toy stores and man kick in...

    All Kinds Of People

    People are so interesting. They way they look, the way they act. As an artist I love looking at the beautiful human form. Thats another reason why I like summer when people are not buried under many layers of clothes. As a people person I am also wondering what makes them tick...

    Traveling On Own

    I often travel on my own when on business. I love to sit in a park, a busy square, outdoor cafe and watch all the activity. It is fun to wonder what people are up too. I was especially fascinated when in Beijing China. I also love observing people in Europe.

    I Watch You Play

    Watching people is fun. Perhaps watching people is a defense mechanism against a propensity to be a loner. An inability to mingle can cause a certain kind of loneliness. In this situation, people watching can provide a great relief. Little pleases me more than to linger in the...

    Props To Me???

    A couple weeks ago I found myself traipsing around Nashville carrying a broom.  This broom was a prop for my Halloween costume, and had a huge sign on it that read "Student Flyer" (my costume was a witch-in-training).So there I sat on bus stop benches with this broom.  After a...

    People Watch

    I'm not a big talker to start and since I'm not, I people watch instead.  Just by watching people, we can tell or get an idea, what kind of person they are.  We can get vibes just by looking at them.

    When I go shopping with others or by myself, I like to sit on a bench in front of the store for a bit and watch the people entering. It's amusing to watch their facial expressions. You can see that some really don't want to be there, some are there to just walk around and have...

    Cafes Were Made For This!

    Sitting with a coffee and the morning newspaper watching the world walk by is a definitive experience of people watching. Thinking on each person, what their style tells you about them, is entertaining in itself! What is it they do, what do hey do.... Invasions! I am intrigued...

    I See You

    I love to people watch. I used to travel as part of my job and have spent countless hours on planes and in airports just watching. I used to like to make up stories about the people I would see. I saw tons of spies and double agents. I saw people cheating on their spouses...

    I See You Too!

    Actions DO speak louder than words! I can listen with my ears and heart to whatever anyone speaks to me. I am also watching your body talk and it tells me more than you are saying.

    We're Watching You

    I've expounded on this topic already in the "Am a Voyeur" group, so I'll simply reiterate that it's impossible for my beloved and I to be bored in a crowd, and that it's usually arousing as well.

    I'm Watching You

    I am quiet and reserved to begin with, so usually I just soak everything in. I love to watch people go by, Sometimes I will amuse myself by making up story about strangers that are walking past me
