Hello, I see you
“A simple “hello” as you walk past someone on the street. A “smile” or a “wave.” These are things we do for each other. Things we do with strangers to let them know, “I see you.” To let them know, “I am not dangerous.” To let them know, “I am not such an asshole that I would walk by you and pretend that you do not exist.” Such a small effort, so worth the breath it takes. What a pity not to say it, what a waste of empty space not to fill it with a “wave” and a “grin” and a “hey.” Oh…..by the way, “Hello.”©Excerpt from “The Almost True Tales, Thoughts & Observations of a Life Long Black Sheep Rebel Girl”
