I've been thinking lately about the impact of our random, daily interactions. I know I try and interact well with those I care about or am trying to impress (I'm very friendly to my handsome vet).

The interactions with no intentions may have great impact. Here's something I wrote a year and a half ago of a time when I realized my guilt.
