That guy I always say “Hi” to…

He works on the corner of Kemang Selatan V.  It’s a lovely little street, with little traffic.  He has few teeth, but an incredible smile.  I see him on my way home in the afternoon.  I call out, “Selamat sore,” and he smiles this grin that makes his eyes all squinty and returns the greeting with one a little louder and more excited than mine.

We barely know each other, but I feel like we’re friends.

    Sometimes, you don’t need words to make genuine and lasting connection with people, could be glance, a handshake, a pat, or a smile. Thanks for this.
