Static Time

A peaceful tranquility has surrounded me, this feeling is eery, it seems like the calm before the storm.

The peace was beautiful while it lasted.

As I sit in this local coffee house watching and listening to the people around me I noticed one thing, they are all oblivious to how one another is feeling. They are talking but not listening.

Each pairing or group look totally relaxed, the pitches of their voices change for a sultry tone to an elevated pitch only when they talk about themselves. I can feel their attention focused only on themselves, one didn’t even noticed her child had walked half way towards to door before his absence became apparent.

We are becoming a world living in static time, everything around us ages and we take no notice because we do not care.
