A day at work. Waiting for the phone to ring. Waiting for the emails to arrive. Waiting for others to make their decisions, do their thing, and get back to me, so I can then do what I need to do.
Perspective: Bored. Restless. Westbound traffic heavy on the street outside. A fan running. Other people talking. Smells like paint. Listening to French Café music. Read a list of French verbs on the internet, trying to stretch my brain into the perspective of another language.

We don't see things as they are, we see them as we are.
