Is checking yourself out in a funeral home shop window inappropriate?

a pillow.

Pillow is a two-faced creature. Luckily one side is always cold and soothing, especially in hot Summer days.

Yesterday I spotted a young nun walking on the street. She was incredibly pretty and graceful. Her peaceful face was reflecting her soul – pure and noble. She passed the bus stop and and her sight stopped on two young women, wearing short dresses, high heels and red lipstick. They were very feminine and attractive. The nun looked at them a bit surprised. I saw a flair of envy in her eyes. Was she like them before she had chosen living in isolation and sacrificed her youth to God? Did her heart break after seeing what she had lost? The ladies giggled. The last night party was good…

I jumped into the tube carriage this morning and I saw a young man sitting in full US Army uniform, with a bag of coke sticking out of his backpack. He was like an alien as everyone was staring at him. It was difficult to guess his face expression. He didn’t seem to be happy but he wasn’t sad either. A proper stone face. Was he going to the airport to catch a flight to Iraq, after a long goodbye with his wife and a child? Now he is sitting on the tube surrounded by people that are going to their offices, carrying leather briefcases. Soon he will be surrounded by camouflage-patterned heroes. Is he going there with a hope or with fear in his eyes? Will he survive or sacrifice his life in order to win somebody’s war? One thought started rumbling in my head: perhaps he is on his way to the paintball field..?
