Why live as someone else.. When someone else is probably wishing to live like you?
It’s not that I desire to be someone else. I am just curious as to how they live.e

Seth! Hi! Happy to see you posting pictures again.
I know, I’ve been bad. I will try to do better. Hope all is well with you.
All the time.
It’s interesting isn’t?
There’s an obscure spoken-word piece by David Byrne, named “Social Studies”, that explores this question. It starts off by pointing out that when people travel, they believe that eating the local foods will help them understand the local people. “As if the point of view was somehow in the food”. It goes on to say that he sometimes feels the urge to walk off with someone else’s groceries, so that he could live a life identical to that other person’s life. “As long as the groceries lasted”.
Anyway, that’s what this post reminded me of.
Paul, that’s cool. I am going to have to look it up now.
Love this Seth!! Please don’t stop.
I will try to do better.
Nice pic, Seth! Always good to see you drop in and make a post, though it is so infrequent these days.
Yes, I know. I will try to do better.
I do too! Happy Friday Seth! Hugz Lisa and Bear
Happy, Happy friday.. of course now it’s Wed. So happy hump day.
Welcome back sweetie! I missed you! Hugz
All the time. I look in windows as I pass by and imagine what other people’s lives might be like. There’s a great book along these lines: Every Day by David Levithan. He wakes up as a different person every day.
Sounds interesting, I’ll have to look it up.
This is fabulous! It is an interesting question – and yes I do wonder at times – I might guess we all do (at times).
Yes, for better or worse.
Guess the next question would be … who would you want to be and why? The answer is the insight into what you are missing in your world. Add that and you are golden!
Indeed. Thanks Sandi.
Good pic. I’ve missed your posts.
Love this photo! And yes, I definitely have before.
I do, and most days I am someone else……..perks of the job……lol
Yes, that does sound like a perk.
Hope all is well in your world. It’s been a long time since your last post and I’ve missed your beautiful photos. When people leave their curtains open at night and I can see into their homes I often wonder what they’re up to. Not so sure I’d want to be them but I am curious.
Thanks! Sorry I’ve been distant. Started a new job last year, now I am promoted to manager.. so busy times.
What did I miss? Is there only photos–no writing this blog?
No there is writing sometimes.
Good photo! Welcome back!
There’s a fancy apartment tower next to the building I work in. Tennis court, swimming pool, and open balconies. I have asked myself this question a few times.

nice pic, i really llike it
Dazzling shot! and Oh yes, very frequently.
I love to view the camera angles and shots from WordPress photographers who have the superior equipment to make subjects so revealing and stunning!
Living as someone else…Well, no; probably because I enjoy Fiction and inventing characters too much to spend time wondering who else I might be — that person wouldn’t invent the same people…!
