I have a post a long time back about my customer who came to dine at my place. This fellow was another customer who visited my restaurant. He came quite late (the owner was about to go to bed) but that was fine. I did not mind that at all. This guest wasn’t wearing a nice and smooth green suit as the last one did. His costume was a little rough and the colors were too dark shade on one side. It wasn’t my typical liking but I respected him regardless (how could I be so rude to my guest).
This was a rare situation for me to have a chance for observing my guest a much much closer distance without him felt intimidated by me. Yeah, I have a glass shield between him and me. I let him enjoy my place as long as he liked and I enjoyed my good look at him.
On a little more on a serious note though, looking at his eye this close makes me thing of something else. My guest is different than you and me not just by the look but also profoundly at genetic building blocks. But that wasn’t what I am thinking of. I am sure he has many of the same feelings as we do. I am sure he has the sense of fear, sense of survival and sense of self as we do and I am pretty sure he has sense of happiness too. This view gives me a greater respect to him as another living being with heart and mind as we do. Are different looks or genetically differences are that important or common feelings that we share are more important? Hmm…
I have to thank him to let me take a chance to have a closer look and gives me a different view.
