Unknowable

I wish I could be more daring in my day to day interactions with strangers–more humorous, flirtatious, outgoing, cheerful, talkative, sympathetic. I wish I met more daring strangers. I wish to be that daring stranger. There’s too much silence between me and the strangers around me. It’s not that daring, really, to just open your mouth and talk. Yet it’s so easy and comfortable to be silent. But who knows what interesting character I’m passing, or what stories I could hear from someone new while sitting next to him/her in the coffee shop?

One thought on “Unknowable

  1. Wouldn’t it be nice if adults could be like small children, and just interact, without thought to where it will lead, just for the pleasure of the moment.
