Doing Nothing

Riding the trains, one notices something interesting. We'll have to ignore London, which seems to be the curious exception to the forthcoming rule. People seem content to sit still and do nothing at all on a train. I tend to read or play games or perhaps even read the divine office to pass the time.. But many people do not do this. Some read a paper for the first half hour, and then nothing. I wonder what on earth they are thinking about. Is it simply absent mindedness? Maybe they contemplate the Blessed Trinity. Silence is good though. I think.
