Open Streets - July 21st, 2012
I was on the bus this morning, sitting across from a middle aged gentleman. Looking at him through my sunglasses I was hit with a strange sort of adoration. There was nothing to my knowledge that was outstanding about this man - mid 50s, salt and pepper hair that had started to recede, simple chinos, a polo shirt, glasses - and yet I was so intrigued.
Perhaps it was his leather shoes. Maybe it was his worn UC London style satchel and matching leather book bag that caught my eye. But that put aside I imagine it was due to the way he was holding his book while he was reading. With fingers curled around the top of the book, allowing him to make margin notes, I couldn’t help but feel intrigued by this stranger. I’ve seen maybe 3 people in my life hold books that way and all were so entirely consumed by what they were reading, passionate about the knowledge held in it’s pages. It is the stance of a scholar.
The entire thing lasted maybe 3 minutes before I became engrossed in something else, but it was interesting while it lasted.
Getting to know Louis more intimately was rather intimidating.
