Energy is a descriptive word, which I would describe as a thing, mass, or person that is full of life. It will stop at nothing and will keep driving forward. Since energy is never created or used up, people pass it on through their emotions and everyday activities.
While walking through the Midtown Exchange Market, I was enthralled by all the culture placed before me. The immense amounts of energy were thriving off all the ethnic music, people, and food. As I walked in, little shops were everywhere. Asian and Mexican shops were the ones the caught my eye right away. The whole idea of a building entirely consisting of ethnic cultures is quite fascinating to me. Immediately, energy was used from trying to take in the whole scene and to figure out where to go first. Brilliant colors, smells of fish, noodles, and coffee were some of the things I experienced. Energized people were hurrying from one place to the other, trying to find the best deal on seafood or beaded necklaces. When one person smiles and laughs, it creates a comfortable setting for another unrelated person, and a result of that positive emotion is a smile on another person's face. This is all the work from energy, flowing from one person to another. I noticed the energy was dying down in the evening, but will be at work once again in the morning when people sing and play music, buy groceries, and are just having a good time.
