      after having posed my question to you just minutes before my new neighbors arrived for dinner. Interestingly, my experience with them confirmed just what you said in your reply. We shared a mutual and genuine exchange of heartfelt responses to 'life' in general, and it felt very satisfying to meet from the heart, as these experiences, when we have them, always do. It affirms my trust and confidence in the potential of human relations, and by extension, all else. I guess we all need ongoing experiences/interactions of this nature to sustain our belief in the potential of what is good.
