This May, I will have lived here two years. To date, I 'know' three people. Not hangin' out 'know' but know them by name and face. Can say Hi Gina, how are you? How's the dogs, husband, etc? Past that we have nothin in common.
I sit on my front porch steps and watch traffice travel out of town, doin WAAAY more than the 30 mph they are suppose to, and the only ones that wave are the bikers. No one in cars wave. Or smile. Or even look my direction.
I grew up in a small town. One a little bigger than this one but still small. We spoke to everyone, waved at everyone, whether we knew them or not. Even goin down the road at 75 mph, you always waved. We have become a sad population, when we can not even take the time to smile and wave at strangers.
Smile and wave to someone new today! Maybe you can make them kackle! Share the joy of your life by passing along a smile and wave. You never know, it might be the spark that travels in their world today.
Pass the kackles today!
