Seeing People

While introducing a song recently, the radio guy talked about someone (the artist, perhaps?) whose heart has been captured by the reality of the humanity all around him. As a result, this fellow is intentional about really showing up more fully in his interactions -- not just with family and friends, but in gas stations, coffee shops, and all sorts of other everyday places. He learns the names of people working at places he frequents most regularly, as one little step forward in showing respect for their individuality and perhaps even getting to know them a bit along the way. He described seeing those around him more as people now, "not as if they were props in a movie about me." That is a great perspective, and an example I want to follow.
