Touching lives

I know that title was a bit weird, but I’m not really sure how else to put it: it’s that person you smile at from in the car, or the cute baby on the train who played with you.

You know? Those people you meet or just a couple of minutes or seconds, never to meet them again? Maybe you’re out there, thinking about the girl in a green jumper, and maybe I’m thinking about you. But we’ll never know: that’s what makes those moments so special, so unique, because you’ll never meet them again.

So, hello, girl who smiled at me from the taxi this morning, and hello, baby that I met on the aeroplane.

In a way, blogging is a bit like that, too, because although us bloggers hope that you’ll keep reading our blogs and liking our posts, it might just be that one sentence that reaches into your heart – and then you click away. I’ve done it, you’ve probably done it.

I don’t know. It’s just nice to feel I have a connection with that person who I’ll never meet again, a small thought joining you with someone who could be halfway across the globe.

Hello, people whose lives I briefly touched. Hello, people whose lives I have not. Hello, everyone out there who has an understanding of what I’m talking about.

I’m here, just one of the seven billion people in the world, but I’m here and I’m thinking and living and breathing a world just as complex as yours.

And I hope that I touch someone, somewhere out there with what I have said.
