Travels with a Naive Extrovert

I've learned a bit about social conditioning this last week from hanging around with our 2 year old grand-daughter. She lives in New York and we've been riding public transport - ferries, buses, subway and a cable-car - sometimes in busy hours.

She's quite verbal and getting more so by the day. We're getting 2-word combos now: 'red bus', 'other people' and 'good morning'. These are complemented by gestures: pointing, waving or the classic "where is it?" signal - upturned palms + quizzical face.

Everywhere we go, she's fascinated by 'other people'. She'll often stare at someone nearby until they acknowledge her, and then just go with the flow after that. It's so cute that reactions are always positive.

And she is utterly undiscriminating: children, little old ladies and very tough-looking guys all get the same treatment. In fact the weirder they look, the more likely she is to be interested.

I guess the world will find a way to beat this out of her, but I really hope it doesn't.

  1. I must say 2016 & 2017 was the years of me trying so hard beyond many desperate measures to gain back love, trust and happiness from my better half after he left. After trying so hard beyond desperate measures to unite with my husband throughout the years, I became confused, frustrated for all the goals, hopes and ardent wishes of uniting my family. I thought maybe he is not really meant for me.
    Unfortunately, I almost accepted my fate before meeting dr. Wakina sometimes in January 2018 through: to also become part of my life journey. With little or no fate, I pleaded and begged ardently for spiritual guidance and help he has been rendering to his numerous followers. Just as I pleaded, my request was accorded, my husband came back the exact date and time he predicted after the love spell.
    Now I realize that I can have everything through spiritual doctor like Wakina. Wakina was an eye opener after uniting my family. My destiny, goals, hopes, family were established through him and his powerful love spell.
