PEOPLE I MEET: LADY WALKER


Are you a people watcher? I am, in the worst possible way. I am fascinated by people around me and love to sticky beak. So much so Justin has even gotten up me for staring. I can’t help it, people fascinate me. I love to look at them and imagine what their life story is.

When Jarvis and I were at Bribie last week I saw this woman. I had stopped on the ‘calm side’ to take photos and she walked past. Walked? Power walked! She was so speedy. Which had me questioning why the walker frame? She was obviously agile and fast. So I stopped and watched her walk past and imagined a life story.


Do you do this? Make up random stories about stranger you see?

  1. I love people watching.
    And I love looking in people's houses. There have been so many big renovations and builds near our house and I wish that I could be invited in to see the results of all of them...it is so hard to see all the progress and not see the finished product!

  2. Yes, always people watching, always wondering their life stories. Everyone has an interesting story to share, yet most of us are strangers to even our own neighbours

    1. I am guilty of this. Bar for the lady next door Betty who is 86 (we chat all of the time) I do not know any of my neighbours

  3. I don't really invent stories to go with the people, but I certainly do get curious. I'm also one of those annoying people who will strike up a conversation with you at grocery stores or wherever and ask 5 bazillion questions (not in a creepy way though, promise). I find people interesting.

  4. I do a little. more I imagine what has just happened or what might happen after that moment I see them.

    this morning when we were going for a walk we saw chairs set up on a lawn and people in fancy clothes teetering towards the chairs holding platters of food in front of them. I imagined them getting ready earlier: smoothing down their dresses, tying their children's bows and gathering their food from their kitchens, all baked especially for this moment :)
