Five Minute Friendships

It's very seldom that I am well enough to go out, but I managed a little outing today. And I met a few new people. The first of these was a young man called David, who spent five minutes telling me about about the plants he and his wife grow on the balcony of their apartment, and how he avoids using harmful chemicals on them.

Later on I met a man who assisted me when standing up was proving difficult for me. He told us about the Five Minute Friendships he likes to make, one of which he had just made. He then told us he is 81 and that he has an allotment and that one of the crops he likes to grow is tomatoes. In return I told him and Sandra, his new Five Minute Friend, about how cutting down on salt and salty food benefits health and makes you feel a lot better. - Sandra was doing more listening than talking, and I got the feeling she's a very good, attentive listener.

So: three new Five Minute Friendships today. - What a nice idea!
