Many People from Many Places

So for todays post it’s out of the ordinary for me, but there is a point to it. I find it amazing that there is not one, two, three, four, or hundreds of people that you could be friends with, however it’s millions if not billions. The only thing that separates us from being able to have millions of friends is chance and circumstance. We just haven’t met them yet.

When filming a project you meet so many interesting people of all ages and potentially if you spend enough time with them beyond just the project, you could be their friend. Or what about when you go to a restaurant? We are seated, we order, we eat, we leave. But within that restaurant there was potentially a handful of people we could have been friends with.

Recently we got in contact again with some friends from Australia, and they would love for us to come out and visit. Now think about all the friends we can meet there. Or what if we do a big trip to Europe, all the friends we can meet in various countries. In 2009 I met a guy named Luke in Italy, he’s from the States in the Carolinas. So we talk for a bit, exchanged info, and this past year he joined us for an epic trip without really knowing too much about us.  However after that trip we are now family and good friends. And there are opportunities like this all the time.

So maybe rather that keep to ourselves in this gadget world we can have a conversation to the person next to us. That’s how I met so many interesting people on planes, from models to the person who designed the pace maker.

Here are some of those interesting people and friends…

  1. Wow, I can’t believe my picture ended up here. I’m just a lowly waitress at Bubbas and now look people from all over the world even in Australia will see my picture! I’m so incredibly honored that you consider me a interesting person enough to include me on this blog!
