Slowing Down For Strangers

The heart of humanity beats with the desire to be seen, heard, and loved.

Later on that evening, I turned on the Christmas lights of our home and wondered if that man who wanted to chat in the parking lot had Christmas lights of his own. Or better yet, did he have someone to share them with? Was there someone to talk to as the snow fell and the lights twinkled? Someone to share a hot meal with as winter swirled outside of all of our windows?

The heart of humanity beats with the desire to be seen, heard, and loved.

I write essays and poetry about life lessons, love, relationships, and self-awareness.
