  1. You have to feel good about yourself to be able to extend yourself and risk. Connecting is a risk. I am most able to risk and be available to others when I am tapped in to my Loving, Accepting God and allowing myself to be open to Grace~Then a smile is easy and I welcome communion with others, starting with eye contact. Thank you for this reflection! Kathy ~ Salem ma

  2. Years ago I read a column in the Washington Post about the author unwillingly making eye contact with a homeless person and discovering that he became a better person for it. Since then I have made an effort to always smile, or at least, make eye contact with people on my walks. I’m simplifying the experience of the columnist but the event was one that emphasized the humanity of the homeless man and how easily our lives can have different ends.
