*Ugandan lady walks towards me*

"What are you doing?"

I'm writing down my thoughts, so I won't forget them when I'm back in another environment.

"What are you thinking about then?"

Who I am, who I want to be and what I'll do in my later life; and if thinking about it is not just postponing the present.

"And who is that?"

Well, even my mind cannot find out what to feel. But what I know is that I want to spread things, make people aware of situations.

"What kind of situations?"

You, here, talking to me.
was what I should have answered, but the presence and kindness of this woman distracted me too much

Kandaiki



and then it hurts you

but you gave it the power to
you yourself
and that

might be where the hope lurks

About random conversations. And how much I love them.




I adore talking to strange people on the train. I adore being asked how to get to the nearest busstop. I adore being told about someone's history. I adore getting different perspectives on life. I even adore the small talk about the weather that precedes these conversations.

Talking to others can be such a relief. I met a woman on the train last week who declared her whole life and felt so grateful afterwards, being able to let it all out. She had been through a lot but her positive mindset spread all over our cabin.

It also makes you feel connected. Why should we life next to each other? We often neglect people but this results in such a rude environment. A simple smile can really make my day.

The lady at the coffee bar today asked me how I liked the book I read while I was in there, 'since she read the same one. She was really enthusiast and sweet and the small conversation made me feel good and bad. Good because I felt connected. I was in some way remembered that we are all in this together. Bad because last time I was over there, she acted a bit rude and I judged her while entering the bar. I get real mad when I catch myself having prejudices. 

I'm aware of the fact that we cannot talk to every single person we meet. Just try by talking to at least one stranger each day. Just try.
