I wonder if you wonder!

This is the Promenade of Deep Space Nine. It is easy to spend time looking down and ... I wonder if you wonder.

For example those two to the right of the officer looking up at me. To the naked eye they are two people walking past each other, but not to me.

Or the new Lieutenant, who got reassigned in hopes of advancing his career in Starfleet. His life is going to slow for him. So as you see, you can see everyone's life from this corner of the station without any interruptions, except the occasional com messages like ... " Lt.
