As we all grow more used to living our lives online, the impetus to talk to real people in real life has changed in some ways.
Facebook drives us relentlessly to acquire more "friends" online, but we sometimes overlook the real people in our lives.
The family next door. The old lady across the road. The man down the street who brings ham bones every Christmas for your dogs.
I'm really lucky to have a brilliant set of neighbours. We share produce together, chat about how our gardens are going, and compare outputs on our solar panels.
When the neighbour across the road hadn't seen me for a few days, he popped over to see if I was OK.
How about you? Have you made contact with your neighbours? Do you smile at them when you see them? Even if you're not currently on good terms with them, a simple smile can be enough to avoid a blow-up in the future.
Try it, you may be pleasantly surprised!
The last Sunday in March is Australia's Neighbour Day. See the website for more detailed information, or look at the Facebook page for lots of info and great stories about the benefits of being neighbourly.
It may change your life for the better. Or someone else's.
