Train stations, airport terminals, subway stops: soulless spaces full of distracted, stressed zombies, or magical sets for fleeting, interlocking human stories?
Well, I think it depends on the situation in which you are there that determines the mindset that you feel the rest of the people there have. Of course, for anyone who likes to people-watch, you probably will find every kind of person no matter the reason you are there.
I’m a bus person. I take the bus into the city everyday for work. I don’t really think much about the other people, except that the reason we are all on that bus is to go to work (although there are a few students that take the bus to the university). Most of us are probably of the stressed zombies…especially on a Monday morning!
