Presence

Yesterday I had brunch with Monique Rhodes, the first time I had a chance to catch up with her since she returned from France. While we sat and chatted I noticed an attractive woman arrive with some friends. It was interesting to me how she exuded presence. Its not that she was especially beautiful or tall or expensively dressed. While others came and went I was captivated by the sense of awareness that she was in the vicinity. I have thought of her since. Not in a prurient way, but simply wondering what it is about some people who seem to fill a room, to turn heads. Is it innate? Is it on purpose, can it be learned?

By contrast I can come and go without being noticed at all. The question is whether I should use my invisibility for good or for evil?
