Window on the World

I went for a coffee yesterday and I sat right by the front window of the store. A few inches of glass between myself and the wider world.

People were walking past outside, most looked in and yet it felt as if I was in my own private place.

All around me inside the bakery/coffee shop were people, those queuing up for takeout beverages and snacks as well as those hoping to find a seat to enjoy their purchases in warmth and comfort in the friendly and pleasant surroundings.

Even had it been warm enough to sit outside, I would still have felt that sense of privacy. My very own window on the world.
