This woman is in a state of mind different than yesterday’s subject. Today’s lady is looking inward, absorbed in her thoughts or meditating. The woman from my previous sketch seems to be focused on the middle distance, wondering about affairs outside herself, even though we don’t see her eyes.
Those who are experienced waiters always bring something along to keep themselves occupied.
