"good Morning" In The Bahamas

The people are so nice here in the Bahamas. Everywhere I go, people wish me "Good morning, good morning!" When I am out walking, I want to enter into my meditation. But at least twenty times, different people tell me "Good morning!" If three ladies are passing by, each one has to say "Good morning!"

My answer is to smile. Again, how many times I have to smile! Sometimes I am walking so fast and I have to smile or say "Good morning." This happens on the path right in front of the hotel.
