“Swimmer” (#343: Project 365 Sketches)

2013, Mon 9 Dec. She looked like a swimmer. Just a guess, judging from her tanned skin, broad shoulders, tapered torso. Well, she could be into aerobics or weights too. What I was absolutely certain was her fiddling on her mobile phone. It’s not just during our commutes. It’s a sign of our times, as my friends like to say. I don’t think it’s about mobile devices per se. We seem to want to fill our “spare” by doing something: reading messages, texting, sketching and whatnot. As if we would sink like a stone if we don’t constantly paddle.
