Everyone is Nicer

Dear Optimists,
Is it just me, or are you noticing everyone is a little bit nicer these days? Is that everywhere or just where I live?
Yes, there’s a pandemic. But humanity is being so much more…human.
I’m raking the yard. A stranger walking by says hi.
A lady is pushing her son on a cart, and they both wave. My daughter has a conversation with them from across the street. Next thing we know, we have a play date “when this whole thing is finally over.”Untitled-Artwork 1.png
I take the kiddo for a walk. Everyone we pass asks how we are and if things are good. Some even ask if we need anything.
All from six feet away.
Is it possible we needed to get farther to become closer?
Love,
Den & Nadia
P.S. Let us know if people seem nicer where you are! Tell us stories in the comments.

More often than not, people wonder what I'm up to. I'm a people watcher, and love to tell a stranger's story, as I see it. If you see me reading or writing in a coffee shop, there's a good chance I'm making up a story about you at that moment. I'm a visual person who loves finding inspiration in my surroundings, and believe that sometimes the smallest detail can tell the majority of the story, if you have the sense to recognize it.
