Books and Food

Bookplate #2 — Theobald

I spend a lot of time making up stories about strangers. Without any basis of information other than my observations and biases, I try and envision what a stranger’s life is like. Who they are. What they do. Whether or not they have a spouse or children. Whether they’re kind or not.

It’s a fun game to me, even though there’s not really any “winning,” since I rarely have the chance to talk to these strangers and ask them about their lives. Perhaps that’s part of the fun? That I can play out an entire life for someone and never need to know if I was wrong about it?
