Thoughts From the Subway
This week I've taken the train a few times for various appointments. It feels like the old days. I was a commuter for 12 years. But now I work from home and so my train time is very rare now. But when I do ride, I love to sit, breathe, respond to emails, listen to music or meditate, & feel a connection with all of the faces around me. I love looking to see what people are reading. Sometimes you hear what music they're listening to. I love seeing what people are wearing. What they are drawing. What they are knitting. Almost always people are alone. I always wonder if they have a loved one to go home to, if they have a job, or where they are going. And most of the time I can't help but wonder why so many people are looking so sad. They could just be tired and worn out, which New York is known for doing to us. Or maybe they're dealing with something crappy. Or maybe they just don't know yet how beautiful & meaningful this life can be, even in difficult times. (I once was in those shoes.) But every once in awhile I see a soul full of life, full of a sparkle. Sometimes our eyes will meet. A small smile and understanding is exchanged and there's a connection in the great human chain. I'm thankful for all the good souls that are capable of doing this. I know it's a big deal to be able to send some good energy into the world. And I hope that I can do the same.
Love & gratitude to all of you,
P.S. The hugest thank you to all of you who have taken our survey. You guys are the best!!! If you haven't taken the survey yet & wouldn't mind helping us out, you can click here to take it. It will be available for the rest of the week.
