Isn’t this a beautiful day?

I know there are people who don’t like talking about the weather.  They consider it shallow, trivial, a waste of time.  But I will talk about the weather any day.

Why?  Because two (or more) people are actually talking about something. And that’s where true communication starts: by talking about something.  Starting out with the deep stuff can be threatening, so we start our talking about the weather, or something else seemingly simple.  I sometimes get to know new people by talking to their dog first.  If you pass the sniff test that opens a lot of doors with humans.

Once you begin talking, you might start talking about more than the weather.  Before you know it relationships might begin to develop.

So next time someone greets you with a comment about the weather don’t ignore them, groan or give a slight wave.  Start talking.  There’s no telling where that cloudy conversation might take you.
