Something I dreamt of having for a long time.
So, dear scientists, if you ever invent one in my lifetime, don't hesitate to contact me and invite me to participate in a test-drive. Hey, I could even model it for you, for free!
The invisibility cap was probably the only thing that was missing during my walk around the neighbourhood tonight.
This old pretty quiet area of Kiev is a good place for me to have a walk. Partly lit, partly dark, old buildings, not many people on the streets... There are streets more lively, and more solitary. The latter being more attractive. But even there, if I would just decide to sit down and enjoy the solitude on nature, a few occasional passers by would make me feel a little uncomfortable by noticing me and then some would probably think that I'm insane or high on drugs or something else in that fashion as its hard to imagine why a healthy young individual would just sit around in some secluded street alone not doing much)))) And then theres also a possibility some weird men would try and approach me, thinking I may like a company. So I can never truly relax knowing Im attracting attention. Thus - the need for the invisibility cap!
Of course, Im alone at home and can spend time thinking about stuff just as well but its like being outside provides more 'space' for the thoughts to fly around))
That's why one of the things I enjoy the most is looking outside from the car while somebody else is driving. A small comfortable public bus of a longer destination is actually pretty good for this purpose. Some 16 people come in, and the bus is driving straight to another city with no stops. Noone is going to bother you. Unlike with taxi drivers who sometimes like to start a conversation (sometimes I like it myself, but thats a different story).
So I sit there comfortably, listen to my music and watch the scenes outside the window. Trees, clouds, roads, somebodys homes, people walking on the streets...
I don't know why its so enjoyable for me. Perhaps its the combination of my favorite music with the best video clip I can imagine - one from the real life scenes flashing in front of my eyes. I feel like Im dissolving into what I see and hear. So I guess its the kind of meditation I'm practicing
A cap of invisibility, however, I've also always wanted because I like watching people, how they behave and interact with each other, how do they experience this thing called 'existence'. Part of the reason I studied psychology.
