Writing, by the beach, facing the water. Seeing.

  1. A caucasian lady on a skate scooter, wearing horizontal striped long sleeves. In this weather? at the beach? Them caucasians must be crazy. She pauses in front of a banner, reads about National Park’s SG50 Concerts in the Park. Well, everybody’s got to do the Celebration isn’t it. She moves on.
  2. Desserts = happiness. They usually don’t last very long.
  3. A couple comes along. A young girl holding an umbrella in her right hand over their heads. It’s warm. He tugs two dogs on the leash in his right hand. His left hand seems to be holding on to her left. What an odd arrangement. If it works for them.
  4. A little girl playing with the sand on the beach, digging, or building, or something. Even at their age they understand that it’s not possible to finish digging it all.
  5. Two boys run along the beach, kicking up sand. They never sit still.
  6. An indian group seems to be celebrating something under the pavilion, they brought a flag. Weird.
  7. A woman stops near me, she pulls out her phone and calls her friend. “I’m here. Where are you?” “Keep walking, I don’t think you’re close yet. I’m going to tie my hair and come over.” Rather bizarre that she says she’s going to tie her hair. It took all of ten seconds which is pretty inconsequential since the friend is at least a few minutes away out of sight. Irrelevant information.
  8. Why do we tell kids fictional stories that are totally unreal? The kids are growing up, they are learning new things about the real world, and we force them to distinguish between the fictional worlds and the real worlds, and lies. Can people fly? Does Santa Claus exist? Where do babies come from? Why is the sky blue? Can I talk to the tiger? Does a happy childhood hinge upon fictional stories of talking animals and flying fairies? What if we told them stories of magical real life things? Like rainbows, furry animals, flying aeroplanes, beaches, sunsets.
  9. Incidentally do you think a child can appreciate a sunset/sunrise? Why and why not?
  10. Do humans even understand the physics of riding a bike? How does the body keep it upright? Is it so simple that everybody can get it right? I mean, cycling isn’t the hardest skill in the world to master, as long as you’ve spent a bit of time getting over a learning curve. Simpler than learning calculus? Simpler than cooking? Simpler than driving? Perhaps that’s less brain involved and more muscle memory? Simpler than tennis? Is there a huge margin of error allowed? But could you even explain how does forward motion offset falling left or right?
