I consider myself a friendly person and I don’t have any qualms about waving to people as I’m walking or driving down the road. Nice thing is that most of these folks will wave back and smile. It makes me feel good and, if nothing else, I have made someone smile for a minute?
However, I have a neighbor who I have lived down the street from for the last two and half years. When he is outdoors, I wave hello to him every time I leave the house. This guy never does more than just look, not even a smile. He appears to be of Middle Eastern descent so it may be his culture not to speak to strange women but it doesn’t stop me, I still wave. . . . Maybe someday he will wave back.
But in the mean time I dedicate this journal page to him.
How about you, do you wave to strangers?
