Smile at someone in a city and you get blanked. And they probably think you’re either weird or hitting on them, or both.
Smile at someone in a village and you’re more than likely to get a smile back (unless they’re a teenager). If they’re a dog walker, you’re even more likely to get a smile, and a hello. And that’s how my day started today, with a smile and a greeting from a stranger. It’s these little connections that make me happy.
What made you smile today?
