A warming trend


the-grand-rounds-2-25-08.jpgSometimes its the small things that put a smile on your face. While our weather has improved dramatically, it has also begun to melt the icy exterior of some of the regulars that we bump into on walks. I make it a habit of greeting most everyone that we see (I will grant the Ipod fixated their solitude). Most folks will return the greeting with a smile an a wave or comment. Some don’t and they become my projects. I am not sure why but it becomes my objective to have them respond in some way shape or form. I had a breakthrough with one of the regulars that I have been working on for the entirety of the winter. Yesterday I got my first “hi” from a guy that has seemed lost in a not very friendly place for a long time. A small victory and a reason for a smile for the rest of the day.

    Seems you cracked a tough nut. A smile and a warm greeting don’t cost anything, yet for some it seems too costly. Go figure?
