relaxing my face
people on the bus and walking around the city always seem to have displeased expressions on their faces. i used to wonder why - were they unhappy with their lives, were they thinking really hard about something, or did they scrunch their faces up because the sun was too bright...?
everytime i saw their disgruntledness, i would make a point of relaxing my face. after all, i wasn't unhappy with my life or concentrating that hard, so why be so tense? i was also conscious of how my face might make others feel - if someone on the street saw me with a peaceful expression, perhaps it would help them think of peaceful things too.
i don't wonder about these things so much anymore. i think at some point i lost interest in what was up with people, and developed more interest in what's up with me. i don't know what this says about me - probably nothing. i did see a lady with a very disgruntled face today while i was thinking very hard about my takeaway box of delicious noodles.
