Noticed!

Something went wrong this morning.. I was off schedule by three minutes. The morning chores before going to office form a system, and a little alteration can create a mess. I almost missed my bus. I got my husband to drive me down, chasing the bus.. we overtook it, stopped it and got in. It was full. But I got beaming smiles from 90% of those on board: "Oh, there you are!" were the unsaid words.

I never realized people notice me so much. I am reasonably regular on the bus, miss it every few days... and even if I do catch it, I sink into those low but tall seats...reading, or even sleeping!!! I travel almost terminus to terminus, but I am not very noticeable, I thought. I dont fight, dont talk in a loud voice, dont gossip... I am in my own world in that one hour journey, often lost in my day dreams. But other people do notice me. Feels good.

isn't it wonderful...how we build unspoken bonds with people in our regular environments...once we realise these little joys, we begin to appreciate life for the kaleidoscope it is.

even if we dont talk with them they recognise us and love us.. i had read in a novel a dialogue.."people travelling in same compartment of a train for some time will develop some kind of rapport with each other..." isn't it true?
