Volunteering I see a lot of people I don't know. Sometimes I see people who recognize me and tell me who they are. Today I saw somebody I knew and found out she'd had cancer. It had been a couple of years since I'd seen her so it was a shock. She looked OK and I didn't ask for details. The thing is, if somebody is in the hospital, it seems rude and personal to quiz them. Although many total strangers tell me lots. But they do it without me asking.
