I just had a scene play continuously in my head and when you get that, you have to go with it so here it is ...
I'm walking down Lambton Quay, the main street in Wellington, with people milling all around me at lunchtime and yet I am oblivious to them. If someone smiled at me or waved at me, I would never know. I am so conscious of the shops, the street signs, the buses and cars, but people - they just seem to disappear from view. Invisible people!
And that scene suddenly reminded me of this song ... The Girl from Ipanema by Frank Sinatra
And then I thought about all the people out there who are perhaps trying to catch my eye. So from now on I will try to look at all the lovely people and hopefully when they smile, I will catch that and smile back!
Have a happy day.
