Is that the new season of QI that you're watching on your ITouch?
Strangers are strange, but most of the time, if you just talk to one, you realize they're just like you. And to be honest, most people are dying to be talked too, it's true! Just don't take their candy...
For, to be a stranger is naturally a very positive relation; it is a specific form of interaction.
Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.
Honest criticism is hard to take, particularly from a relative, a friend, an acquaintance or a stranger.
