Wander aimlessly

He’s a real nowhere man,
Sitting in his Nowhere Land,
Making all his nowhere plans
for nobody.
:John Lennon

An ideal realization of this would be too boring to talk about. But when ordinary people make plans about small things, wander aimlessly in search of what they know not, it makes for captivating cinema.

Planning in excruciating detail an entrance and the ensuing conversation, selecting answers, wondering what the person in front of you will look like, say, do and how you will react and wondering all the while if the time is right for the next move… I could go on and on. It’s like there is an entire worlds instead our heads to fill in the times when waiting is impossible and we just don’t know how to fly a plane.
