Bus Story: Make Room For Her

March 24, 2014

It’s like the world owes him a favor. Several favors, in fact. A huff of indignation here at sharing a seat, a lip curled in distaste there for needing to move his bag, he is a hunched mass of frustration and entitlement. But on this chilled Monday morning, his sighs and snarls merely careen off his unwanted seat mate. She is bedecked in reds and golds, with the just right amount of embroidered detail to create a majestic but understated beauty. Her face, ageless in years yet wise and serene, turns towards the man and her smile beams at him like the shining beacon of a lighthouse in a New England fog. For the Avatar of Gratitude to climb aboard the shiny “C” Line to plunk down next to that guy is not a coincidence. Well played, Universe, well played.
