People and gaits

by Chua Han Au

I adore watching people move. A proclivity to register their particular gait; eyes that could be both with spirit and oblivion; the seemingly uncultured hairstyles of both men and women; how people in love are most pristine and beautiful.

Oh you can decipher someone’s history from his gait, you can derive the disposition of someone due to his style and mien.

I want to watch people, but I don’t want them to realise. I want to write stories about them, link the people of my society together by this great circumlocution of words.

I love writing for people, and about them.
