Brief Encounters is a collection of people I have met. Maybe our paths crossed for a mere 15 seconds or maybe for a more substantial 15 minutes. Nevertheless, the encounters were all brief. Some people told me their life story, others didn't even reveal their name. It depended on the day, my mood, the weather, the country, the language, my surroundings, and everything really. It depended on the person. It always depends on the person.

During our 45 minute wait in line at the Louvre, my roommates and I met Bob. He was an American that had traveled to visit family. His wife and him chatted with us the whole wait and we exchanged stories of the places we had traveled and yet seen.
