coffee break


coffee break, originally uploaded by Michael Clark.

The man in this picture was talking to himself. When he bought a coffee and came to sit inside the cafe area, another customer (in a group of three middle class customers) looked askance at him, as if he were a weirdo.

Then the group of three all started smoking, which stank, and prompted me to leave. When leaving I reflected how the man talking to himself (a basically harmless activity) was regarded as weird, while the smokers (a self-destructive and potentially lethal activity) were not.

  1. (it always gives me a thrill to see pics of TO on someone’s website! and look! you got a streetcar in the shot! hee!)

    are we sure he was talking to himself? he could have been wearing a headset and talking on the phone…i can’t tell the difference.


  2. Well, he was talking the whole time, and I didn’t see any headset (he came right into the coffee area and sat down at the table next to me). Later, when I was driving away, he was still talking…

    So possibly he was in contact with ETs or ghosts, but no, he didn’t have any headset. 😉
