Conversations, in understanding and in silence

As I ran for yet another lecture, running toward me on the sidewalk another: and this time it was I who happened to be on the side visible to the bus driver. Quick exchange of unspoken communication:
  • hand half-raised, glance in his direction: yes?
  • his head shake: no
  • nod of acknowledgement, hand lowered
  • further mutual nod of thanks and acceptance, quirk of smile on both sides.
How many of these unspoken conversations have I had, each and every day? What had it cost me? Complete understanding, not one word spoken -- and the day a little brighter on both sides for it.
