My new year's wish

If I could have one wish come true next year, it would be that more people display Civisme.

That's a french word that means sort of a combination of civic spirit and good public manners.

Civisme isn't:
  • Honking your car horn
  • Cutting someone off
  • giving someone the finger
  • riding your bike on the sidewalk

Well, I'm sure you get the picture. Be nice to people, and people will be nice in return. Some people will take this as an invitation to walk all over you, but pay attention and just ignore them. Fully. Completely. Totally. It works.

Here's a few Key Koncepts:
  • share the road
  • Be nice to people
  • don't be rude
  • Don't shout, scream and swear
  • Maybe they actually didn't see you?

Have a great 2008!

I have a few examples of civisme:

1. Don't walk on the bike path (this is the same thing as cyclist on the sidewalk).

2. No stealing bikes/parts from bikes.

Have a happy holiday and a great 2008!
