The Simple Folk

She was unaware that people could be so simple minded. 

Standing in line for her coffee, she overheard the man speak of counting his steps as he walked. As if it was a normal daily occurrence. There was nothing to think of while walking up steps so why not count them? A way to keep the mind busy. 

She could never fathom the idea of wanting to keep her mind busy. Thoughts that rained for days and kept her sleepless through the darkness of night.  Who had time to count their steps?  There was ideas, sounds, smells, conversations to take in on a daily basis.  Problems in life that needed to be solved and thought about for hours on end.  Her mind would never stop contemplating the world and feelings around her. This must happen to many people, because if it didn’t why would “counting sheep” be such  a muse .
