I'm generally a cheery, upbeat person, and kind of chatty.
Ok, if talking were water, I'd be the Ocean.
One thing I do a lot is smile at people I don't know. If it's a man, often it's a smile and a nod. I don't know why we men seem to always do that.
Anyhow, more often than not the person I smile at will smile in return. Often it leads to a polite little conversation.
I LOVE that. I'm fascinated by the idea that I can briefly meet a complete stranger, have a meaningful interaction with them, and then never see them again. The patterns people move in are complex and beautiful.
I'm grateful that when I smile at those unknown to me, they tend to return the favor.
