Noticing

Medium, 2014

Dipping back into Greene, I've been noticing how much you can tell about a person by observing the smallest details.

Just as I had expected my new lawn-mower was wet all over: I dried it carefully and oiled the blades before I did anything else. Then I boiled myself two eggs and made a cup of tea for lunch. I had much to think about.

    How we boil an egg, or clean a lawn mower, can tell so much

    1. This egg was more medium than soft. The eggs we made tonight were soft, almost too soft. Always experimenting with eggs... I wonder what it says about me.
