There are precious few acts of human kindness that are visible on the "bad" side of town, so I'll share this with you:
I have oatmeal at home, and enough money for a bus pass and a bagel today. Shortly after counting my change, I went to the bus stop.
It's a windy day, and I'm watching all of the trash blowing. One piece of trash, looking like a snowball, crossed the major street "courteously!" It crossed practically in the crosswalk, completing it's path on the sidewalk, where a normal person would likely complete their crossing.
Despite all the things I see blowing, I missed this! A man walked past me and said "Pardon me maam, but this wouldn't be your $3.00 blowing in the wind would it?" I said "No, it isn't but I sure could use it!" "It's yours!" he said, and handed it to me. I thanked him profusely.
Then I thought, "hmmm, maybe if i look in the direction that the wind is coming from, a 100 or 1000 bill will blow my way!"
I did just that, I looked east, another one dollar bill blew in front of me! I took the $3.00 and went to the pizza shop where I got a nice slice of pesto pizza. Then, a couple at the next table said "We have all this food left over and we can't take it with us. They asked a patron if they wanted it, and the patron said no.
I said, "I'll take it!" It was 2 more slices of pizza! So, this was a nice relief from what is largely alot of draining things going on in my life.
