I had seen her aournd the neighborhood many times since and we chatted in passing. I hadn't seen her since 9/11 and wondered if she was ok.
Well, tonight I ran into her on South End Ave. I ran up to her and told her how happy I was to see her familiar face again. She hugged me. She told me that she is a chaplain and worked for the united nations. We talked about our experiences and our difficulties living here and the we spoke about peace.
I can't help but think about how we met. I'm so glad I had the courage to tell a complete stranger that she was radiating kindness and beauty...if I hadn't, I might never had had the wonderful conversation I just had tonight.
