Have you noticed the strangers you see every day that are so much a part of your world? I’m talking about strangers you see going through the motions of their own daily routine that become part of your routine. If you didn’t see them, your day just wouldn’t be the same. There’s something comforting about the guy with the coffee van you see every morning on your way to work. Or the lady on the train who is always reading a book you’ve read and really enjoyed. Perhaps it’s the Mum you pass each day as you take your children to school. What about the lady who serves you lunch at the local café you eat at every day?
There are so many people who share our world and touch our lives in subtle ways. Let’s share our experiences: Who do you see every week? What makes you notice them? What is it about seeing them that makes you happy?
