capturing little moments

Starbucks, first thing in the morning, is a really interesting microcosm. Regulars include the retired gentlemen who gather with the young techie entrepreneurs and enjoy rousing discussions, there are the young kids who play wildly imaginative games and never seem to be bored, there are the overly-tired college students who drag themselves directly from bed and sit hunched over in little groups, the unemployed who go through the motions of a job search with no luck but still maintain optimism, and the women who gather because they enjoy the connection they have with each other. There are also the haggard, rushed employed folks who race into the drive-through and don’t think twice about hurling curses and wagging their middle digits at other drivers in their path. It’s a great place to sit and capture little moments.
