My car slows as it approaches a stoplight I take this opportunity to allow my mind to become engulfed with my surroundings the bright fierce red of the traffic light the brilliant blue sky with its specs clouds and the mass of hurried people The four corners of the intersection are filled with people who are preoccupied with their fast-paced lives to notice the little things such as animals and anxious cars awaiting the traffic light My thoughts vigorously put all of the information that my mind has gathered from the intersection to order My mind eagerly involves itself by engulfing my surroundings and giving them some meaning The office workers too busy to pay attention to the life that surrounds them catch my eyes first They seem to be apathetic robots preprogrammed to start at one location and go to another They pay little attention to any detail unless it has to do with them I chuckle at the automated behavior of these robotsOnce my mind has come to a conclusion about the workers this small little squirrel sitting on its hind legs eating a juicy apple catches my attention Sitting there on the corner of the intersection minding its own business the squirrel devours the apple Once done with its apple the squirrel throws the core to the side and remains there for a bit My mind temporarily comes out of its lapse and I wonder if this squirrel is analyzing me too The neck of the squirrel seems to be a second hand on a clock tick tock It moves a bit then stops then again moves continuing until it can no longer move its neck A 1996 Ford Mustang next to my car revs the engine and my mind loses interest in the squirrel and moves to the cars next to and opposite of me There are two cars a BMW and an old pickup truck the name is not visible
