We all seem to have a natural curiosity about one another. Have you
ever taken a walk through your neighborhood at night and walked past
a house where the curtains are open and you can get a peek at what is
inside? There always seems to be one or two houses in a neighborhood
that seem so fascinating. You want to snoop but know you cannot.
Sometimes we want to snoop to see the decorating. Sometimes it's
because the person who lives inside is so interesting. Have you ever
stopped and noticed what's on a person's desk? You don't have to open
a drawer and yet you can learn so much about it's owner. Are they neat
and organized or is everything in a jumble? Are there photos of family
and or friends? Are there intriguing items?
If you could would you want to peek into a home's nooks and crannies?
You can learn so much about a person by snooping through their book
Have you ever read the Griffin and Sabine books by Nick Bantock?
It begins with a postcard from a woman living on a far off island to
an artist living in London. She requests one of his fish postcards.
Griffin does not know her, or if he once met her then where or when?
A correspondence begins between the two of them and the reader is
drawn into their lives as a third party observant.
Inside the book are postcards and letters tucked inside envelopes just
waiting to be read. Why is it that we are so fascinated reading other
people's mail? I think that is one of the reason that collecting old
postcards is so popular. It's not just for the graphic but it's so fascinating
to read into the lives of some unknown person writing to a friend or
So many of us love to travel. To delve into the culture of some exotic land.
To learn what's different and what is the same about us. We are just so
curious about each other. I suppose it's a form of snooping too.
Who among us has not wanted to snoop into another person's medicine
cabinet? We don't have a medicine cabinet in the master bedroom, just
cabinets with drawers. I'm letting you peek into mine. This will give you
a big insight into me. I don't take any drugs except a very occasional aspirin
or a Benadryl if I get stung by a bee or bit by a fire ant.
I use a retinol and a vitamin C cream and sunscreen. Sometimes a
moisturizer if I think I need it.
I like to do my workouts at home.
Be honest now ~ don't you like to snoop just a little bit?
