A Belltown wait staff person taking a break, chatting on a cell phone, while a pedestrian across the street does the same. In the distance are the hills of West Seattle across Elliott Bay, a lovely view. Seems whenever we get a break in work, are walking or driving, we begin chatting via cell phone as if we can't be alone with ourselves. I'm wondering if we ever take moments to be idle, to see, to think, to breathe.
