There seems to be a feeling of camaraderie in the world amongst people doing activities of the same kind. Have you ever noticed when you're driving down the road and you see motorcyclists pass each other? They usually give each other a little wave or a nod, yet they probably don't know each other. And people out riding their bikes? They seem happy to share a wave and a smile. The same thing happens on my morning runs. As I pass a fellow runner sure enough we give a little wave or a nod, as if to acknowledge that we understand that what they are doing is challenging. Yet, I don't notice motorcyclists waving at runners, or bikers waving at motorcyclists, or runners waving at bikers etc. It seems to be people doing the same activity.
Now....how come people in cars can't do the same thing? Wouldn't that eliminate road rage if everyone just smiled and waved at each other? Oh, what a happy world this would be :)
Have a lovely weekend and wave at somebody new. It might just brighten their day.
