I don't know about you guys, but I get more entertainment and value from talking to interesting people. Just earlier today I spoke with an older hobo gentleman as I walked out of a McDonalds. He was going about asking people for spare change, so I gave him some (I usually give to people in need, if they ask me). I learned he was headed up north to Sacramento. He said he was catching a train to get there, and clarified that he was going to hop a freight train and wasn't taking a passenger train (duh). It's funny. A lot of guys who are homeless or on the streets for a long while look at least a little off. You know, dirty, disheveled, or not all there mentally. But he was very lucid, relatively clean, well spoken, seemed normal otherwise (whatever "normal" means anyway). I like these kinds of encounters. Even though sometimes people can be rude and even hostile, you can grow from them. I mean, most of us go about our daily routines, and sometimes run into people going somewhere or other, witness something happening, and a lot of it can be mundane, but I have learned that I can usually find something novel or interesting or special anytime I interact with and share moments with others, or in watching them. Through these conversations and encounters you can learn something new or peer deeper into the human condition. And some of those moments are more interesting than others, especially if you are lucky enough to meet more interesting people. The more you go out and experience the world, the more lucky you get. I cherish this kind of thing. It's wonderful, isn't it? The world is like a giant carnival.
