I could possibly be a professional party crasher. I like to join different types of
parties or gatherings and can easily be invited if I happen to walk by. This happened
today. I was on my way to the golf course, but was stopped by a group of
people; “You should come and meet my oldest” the elderly lady said. I met the
whole family. Three generations were gathered. I don’t know them actually. I
have only met the grandparents before.
I like to observe and be a part of a family gathering. I enjoy observing the
grandchildren communicating and try to be part of the grown up’s conversation.
I like watching the resemblances between the relatives. They look the same,
they have some of the same moves and they express themselves the same way.
Suddenly I understand things I haven’t understood before. I get to know people
fast that way. And I enjoy getting to know them and letting them get to know
me. I enjoy how I can sense that I represent fresh air in the conversation.
There is something beautiful about a family that stays together but shows
interest for the newcomer or foreigner.
But mostly I like observing the love and care between the relatives. If the opposite is
the case it is of course sad. But often there are elements of care even if
there are conflicts or discussions. I enjoy it. In fact I enjoy the fact that I
don’t feel like an outsider even if I am. Maybe it is the hospitality or
plainly the family love that hits me. I don’t know. And hopefully I bring some
“Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers,
for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing
