The woman on the train is staring at the ground. She's thinking: I need to remind the neighbours to keep their dog quiet.
The girl on the swings in the park is looking at the sky. She's thinking: Why aren't the clouds shiny?
The woman at the till in the supermarket is thinking: These coupons are making my life a misery!
The man standing at the bus stop is thinking: I should have woken up earlier.
I'm not actually psychic but sometimes I just like to wonder what people are thinking. And then I wonder if people are trying to think about what I'm thinking. We can't read peoples' minds but we can certainly look at their faces and listen to them speak and sometimes that's enough.
I know that sometimes I've wished someone could see that I was in pain and help me without me having to tell them so I now make sure I pay attention to everyone.
So if you ever see somebody with a sad face or a miserable voice, ask them what's wrong.
