Lusting People Watching

At times I find myself being entertained by watching people walking by, or having dinner at the next table, shopping at the mall, just about anywhere. The appearance, posture, who speaks, who doesn't, all provide a bounty of data on which to form opinions and judgements.

We are fortunate, thanks to the ancient vase painters, to look back at a type of social gathering, the symposium.

Take a look around at the guests, and see if you recognize any that you might meet at a party thrown today!
