    Smiling At Everyone...

    Me, I love smiling at everyone who i see, even walking down a street i'll smile at anyone who passes me and looks at me. The really sad thing is is when people don't smile back at me :( It only takes a second, and i always smile at them.

    I Can See It.

    I am very keen on peoples behaviour, I read every small insignificant gesture, in milliseconds, telling me the lie behind the fake smile, I feel body language intuitively and react on it without will. I think sometimes its better beiing blind to peoples behaviour

    Better Than Words

    The Butterfly Effect

    We learnt about the butterfly effect in class a little while back and how that one tiny flap of a butterfly's wings can cause an earthquake on the other side of the world... who would have thought that something so tiny (and apparently insignificant) could make such an impact...

    Just...

    that smile when someone recognizes you, or when the librarian lets you check out just one more book, or a favorite song on the radio, a goodbye after school, a reason to wake up tomorrow...

    A Rose Left...

    Years ago I was working as a barista for a local coffee place when I lived in Colorado, and I was having the worst day.  My heart was low from a fight with a boyfriend, and my job was getting to me.  I was closing up for the day and I needed to clean my machines so I...

    Thank You, Gentleman

    Today I was out on my lunch break, and I went to throw some trash in the bin on the street, and as I threw it the wind blew and my rubbish missed the bin even though I was right next to it.  A younger gentleman that looked haggard and toted a backpack walked past and...
