WHAT CAN WE LEARN FROM MICRO-MOMENTS OF PAUSE?
I saw a guy coloring the chewing gum stuck on the pavement yesterday, and it gathered quite a crowd. He does that all the time, and has even gone viral.
At first, I thought people gathered around someone who had fallen down with his bag and colors scattered around him. But no, he was ok. My friend saw me wonder and worry and said, “It’s the chewing gum man.”
He was sitting on the ground, filling in the chewing gum patches with colors, names, drawings, and other little images that would spark someone to pause and look closer.
