What were they thinking? What were they seeing? What was one saying to another...as they spoke in a tongue that only they could understand?
I wondered if they considered me as alien and strange as I considered they? Perhaps they thought I'd arrived from another planet? Perhaps - they wanted to be-friend? Or - perhaps it was awe or maybe fear?
Not everything - I decided - is meant to be understood. Some things - are better left un-examined and un-said.
Perhaps - they thought me oddly-shaped and funny-looking? With only two feet on the ground...and without horns growing out of my head? Perhaps - curiosity was getting the better or them?
I really couldn't help but stop and stare...as they stared back at me.

As I sit myself down to schedule this post - I see that this is my 2300th photo here on this blog. I'm left awestruck and speechless. 'This' is what happens when you commit to the discipline of simply showing up.
