It is not really difficult to construct a series of inferences, each dependent upon its predecessor and each simple in itself.

I like to take these long walks, mostly at night and look up at all the darkened windows. I just wonder what peoples lives are like and what they're dreaming about. And one night I was out pretty late, and as usual, all of the windows were dark, except one and I stepped and looked up, and I saw you, standing there, and you were crying. I thought what was it that made you so sad. I like to see peoples faces, when they are just falling in love, or making up from a fight, or even if they are just grieving. There's something beautiful about a persons face at that moment, and yours was incredible...confused..shocked.
