“I regularly talk to strangers. I rarely find someone who is rude about that, one woman in California while we were on vacation was memorable but apparently she thought I was a “nothing” and not worth her time, ok then, we don’t have to talk. I ride the train sometimes and talk to people who seem to be ok with it. One was a person who just got out of prison, I knew the judge that put him there and another was a person that knew where I worked (at the jail courtroom) and recognized me. Both were nice, pleasant people who were getting their lives on the right track. I got to color with a young person on a flight, taught me to bring colored pencils or crayons and coloring books with me on trips. I look directly in people’s eyes (because it’s not offensive where I live) and smile at them. One person walked by, came back and thanked me for the smile. I like talking to people, probably learned it from my mom.”
