    Definitely be nice to the supermarket staff. I’ve found that many friends I had when our children were young drifted away after they were all grown and out of the house. Our empty nest interests were too different. (translation: I can’t play either golf or tennis and they don’t read)

      Luckily the world is full of other people!

  3. Strangers are just friends you haven’t yet met!

    I seem to have far more random interaction than actual known family/friends…today it was twice: 1st because the little cafe had very tiny tables and not much space and I shared a table with a lovely young lass; we got talking about this and that including the forthcoming local elections (did I have my voting forms) and where we both lived in Auckland – and then where she was going after her coffee (Tepid Baths)…then to make it even more interesting, she left before me, but I caught up with her at the 3 Lamps bus stop, more chat. Then again when the green bus we got on, terminated at Victoria Park – she went on her way, and 2nd lovely lass was waiting for next bus…and she was fretting as she needed to be at work by noon…she hailed an Ola via her phone, and then offered me to share her ride, as it was all paid for! I declined as I was planning on getting off the bus in midtown…

      I love these random connections. They are precious.

    Avoid all self-service opportunities. Put down your phone and look around. I talk to people every time I leave the house. It makes life very rich.

    1. Rachel McAlpine says:

      Rich. That’s the word.

  6. Sage words, indeed…
