Mirrors and Windows
There's a Turkish kebab shop down the street from my house. Once in a while, when in a certain state and needing energy to burn, I drop in on it. The place offers seating along two of the walls. One of the walls is glass, and the people there can look out on the street while they eat. The other is on a paneled wall, and the seats are mounted in front of a large, rectangular mirror.
It occurs to me now and then that you could divide the whole world into people looking into mirrors and people looking out of windows.
But the great thing is that every day we get a chance to change seats.
