I was wandering along today, feet on the ground, head somewhere in the upper atmosphere, when I heard "hello you". It was a good friend of mine headed in the other direction. We stopped, had a chat for 5 minutes and went on our way.
I catch up with my friends regularly, but today's little catch up was one of those spontaneous moments and conversations that bring such light into a day. I could show her the cute toy I had bought for a baby shower, she could fill me in on what she has been up to.
Living in a city, even a relatively small one like Canberra it is
surprising how often you can go out without running into anyone you
know. That 5 minute chat today made me feel so much more connected to my community and I continued on my way, head much more on planet earth.
Have you had a spontaneous catch up - even a 5 minute one like me - recently?
