Today was sunny so I took a walk through the local laid out gardens,then by the Hythe canal.
I was struck by the amount of people who do not smile back when you smile at them.
It got me wondering why.
Perhaps they are shy, or think that your intentions are not good.
I have been told that we Southerner's are less friendly than those folk from the North.
Maybe that is true.
I always smile at people I pass and often say hello,good afternoon and so forth.
And I hasten to add I always will.
