Beautifully written. There’s something special in making eye contact with a stranger. It doesn’t always result in a date or a friendship or even a smile. But it’s sharing a moment of our lives with another human. It’s being in the same space at the same time and acknowledging one another’s presence. People are so much more worthy of the limited number of moments we have in our lifetimes than whatever soulless thing that happened to have entertained its way into our hands.
Thanks for sharing this story. I’ll push myself to look up this week (and unplug my earphones).
