The Glad Eye
In the south, we are taught to be friendly to strangers. Not wanting to appear rude, we walk down streets giving passersby a smile or nod to acknowledge them. Currently, I am spending some time in France refreshing my language skills and enjoying their culture. I just learned recently that for the French, making eye contact with a stranger is considered to be rude. The French prefer to save their energy for people they know and care about. If you look them in the eye or smile and then say bonjour, the assumption is that you know them. If they do not recognize you, they think you attempting to manipulate them because you are engaging in such an informal manner or that you are flirting. This, incidentally is not the time when they choose to flirt if they were raised well.

The weather forecast called for a 50 percent chance of rain, but we stuck with our plan to go camping. We loaded the car in a drizzle and decided we would take our chances.

I recently watched a video of Carolyn Myss discussing how guidance works. She shared how she returned from teaching overseas and walked into her New Hampshire farmhouse only to feel that she could no longer live there. This house had been her home for ten years. Without taking her coat off, in twenty-two minutes flat, she had arranged for a neighbor to help her pack, her brother to fly down and drive a moving van, and asked her mother if she could stay with her until she decided where her next home would be.
