Tale Weaver #117: Observations 27.04.17


I am a people-watcher – especially at airports, bus and train stations. I wonder who the people flowing past are, where they are going, and why. I imagine all sorts of possibilities, scenarios. Depending on my mood, the answers can be whimsical, fantastical, “flash noir,” semi-autobiographical, ultra-real.

Imagine you are at a transportation hub. Observe the people around you, then weave a tale about your fellow travellers/”waiters”: chance encounter; flight of fancy; gritty realism; telepathic; intuitive; wildly speculative; possibilities/impossibilities.

    So, if you don’t hear from me — doesn’t necessarily mean I haven’t tried reading it.
    Gremlins, be damned.
