from Wiki How—-
Smile and see how they respond. A lot like joking around, smiling at someone will usually produce a response. If the person likes you, they are certain to smile back. If the person doesn’t like you, they’re more likely to not smile back. Consider these things when “reading into” a smile:
- A person could simply be caught off guard by your smile. They would love to smile back at you, but yours was so unexpected that they didn’t know how to react.
- A person may choose not to smile even if they like you. Pretty much, they are convinced that you don’t like them, and so they don’t want to show you their feelings because they don’t want to deal with the rejection.
One I like from Will Rogers-
An onion can make people cry, but there has never been a vegetable invented to make them laugh.
More on writers and writing…..
“When I speak of writing, the image that comes first to my mind is not a novel, a poem, or a literary tradition; it is the person who shuts himself up in a room, sits down at a table, and alone, turns inward. Amid his shadows, he builds a new world with words.”
— Orhan Pamuk
I think I should do this. Right now I’m in the living-room and there are distractions ;like television, people lounging around and sometimes somebody’s kids playing. This is all good ,but not conducive to the work of writing which takes some heavy concentration at times. (Ken K. Chartrand)
In 1950, only 22 percent of American adults were single. Today, more than 50 percent of American adults are single, and 31 million—roughly one out of every seven adults—live alone. People who live alone make up 28 percent of all U.S. households, which makes them more common than any other domestic unit, including the nuclear family. In GOING SOLO, renowned sociologist and author Eric Klinenberg proves that these numbers are more than just a passing trend. They are, in fact, evidence of the biggest demographic shift since the Baby Boom: we are learning to go solo, and crafting new ways of living in the process.
From the Heart Doctor:(internet)
No, we shouldn’t be ruled by our feelings but God made us with feelings for a reason. They validate our existence and value and they help us know when harm is near.
“Answers to the comfort question also reveal why some people are so good at communicating while others have such difficulty. We are not born knowing how to understand and express what is inside our souls. That kind of knowing ourselves requires contemplation and reflection…Being fully known and understood requires we say aloud to someone else what is going on within our souls”
I found a beautiful poem about love and friendship. Check it out!
“Leaves will fall, cold will creep in
A circle of life that ends where it begins
It may take a thousand years and a thousand poems penned
But my hair will someday gray and my back will bend—
Then my shadow will join my body in the earth once again.
I know not the way, or even the when
Or who chooses that day we’re called away to ascend
But you bathed me in your bravery and forgave me my sins
You made a home in your heart for mine to live in—
And in return, my friend, this poem is my oath that a river of love will run through it until the very end.”
― Ryan Winfield, State of Nature
I attached a thought to a Paradigm…
Our lives and how we live them resonate in the Universe’….(K.K.C.)- Everything you do affects everyone and everything.- from Paradigm Shift.
