Ants

I hope I haven't been too influenced by reading Zelda Fitzgerald bios recently (one of the reasons doctors diagnosed her as "schizophrenic" was that she mentioned that people seemed like ants to her...). Uh-oh. This past week, while walking from the bus along the sidewalk to work and then into the building/up the elevator/down the hall to my office, I couldn't help but notice the "friendly face of acknowledgement" that I felt I had to make each time I passed someone. This is pretty much the same as ants touching their antennae as they pass each other. (Or like dogs sniffing butts. Each species has its own ways of determining vibes from its other members.)
