I was at a large public event this weekend, and was meandering around in a sort of aimless manner, as I am wont to do if I have the chance, and in looking at the many people I passed by, I noticed some would avert their gaze, some looked on beyond, and a few locked eyes for a moment - and one or two even smiled.
How many times have you just wished you could invite someone into your life - even if just for a moment. To transcend the societal barriers and just say "hello." Maybe find common interests, solve common problems, or discover something unexpectedly good.
How many of you out there have thought the same thing? Wouldn't it be a great way to meet a potential friend, a lover or a confidant. Of course weare all programmed to be suspect, jealous, possessive and defensive, but wouldn't it be a great way to spend some time.
OK, back to reality.
