Union Station in Chicago, May 2014
Tourist season is starting in DC, time to bump into bored teenagers wondering around looking down at their"smart phones" and hand held video games. If you are not carefully they will literally bump into you, as they don't look up to see what is around them. A few times on the National Mall , not the one with Macy;s and Nordstom's, the one with the Capital on one end, the Memorials on the other end and the museums of the Smithsonian on both sides, I have said out loud, what I was thinking, LOOK UP AND SEE WHAT IS AROUND YOU! Most don't hear, they are so engrossed in the latest text message or twitter exchange, some have attitude - who am I to say something to them, a few look up and go Wow!
Our lives are like that, we get so engrossed in the details of what we are doing, that we don't often pause to look up, and see the wonders that are around us. Let me add that to my list of things to do today.
