Maybe it’s because there’s no xBox or television or rock show or girl or food to hold my interest, but, I get writey when I’m travelling. If not writing, I’m sketching…sometimes both.
I’m not particulalry great at either, but it’s something that I do; and, possibly strange just to me, I never see anyone else doing it as well. Travelling alone for 20-something years, and I can’t recall a single time I’ve ever seen anyone with a sketch book. If I had, I would remember the nod and pursed-lip smile/smirk I would have given him or her.
For the most part, everyone else is either interacting with their overactive kid, or, just staring into space.
Mostly the later.
