Wednesday September 24th, 2008 - Bits of Conversation

Miss Doodle, on her morning walk, or on her way through the city, captures bits of people's phone- conversation everywhere... She wonders what her brain does with all this information taken out of it's context. Is there a little box full of this thought-confetti?

"thought confetti"....I love that, Andrea!

Miss Doodle, what does happen from all of these bits and pieces we grab from people on the street? If we were writers, they may end up in a story somewhere sometime. In your case, these conversations end up in Andrea's moleskine...right? But in they clog our brain? I suppose they could.

You sure do come across some really great dressers on the streets of Paris! :) Then again...what am I saying? It is Paris! LOL

Fun and thought provoking post...thanks!

I find it so odd really, to be a part of people's "intimate" phone talks whilst walking about. Or standing in line somewhere. Hopefully Miss doodle's brain can let go of this confetti and create a confetti rain. Or like the balloons at the end of my favorite movie "The Red Balloon," let the thought confetti float over all of Paris.

How nice of you to notice all these people. I think it's a pity so many people are so wrapped up in their heads these days. Because I mostly drive for my job, I am continually amazed at how many people are on the cell phone in the car and walking down the street and in the grocery! Doesn't anyone live outside their heads????

Hehe - I love this! People are so open about their lives when they're talking on their mobiles and speaking much louder about personal things than they would if they were talking to the person next to them. Have you noticed how middle-aged people speak even louder? Yes I'm in that age bracket so I keep my voice very low on purpose!

I love it. I think people are being born with a phone attached to their ears now. lol
It is hard NOT to listen to private conversations. some times you dont realize it while standing in a line at a store and then you get this dirty look like you are being nosey. Arrgh.
I see them go for a walk with one glued to the ear. So much for enjoying the beauty around one.
Love the drawings.
