Manhattan Moment Monday

Manhattan is a borough chock full of uniqueness.  I am a proponent of looking out and up when walking around the city. There are too many interesting faces, places and spaces to miss if you are looking down.

I derive great joy from the many connections that I make with those faces, places and spaces and had “one of those moments” over the weekend.  I was strolling south on Tenth Avenue in Chelsea when I caught eyes with a stranger who was sitting on the steps of The Church of The Guardian Angel with a notebook on her lap.  The woman asked me if she could borrow a pen for her prayer list that she needed to compile before Mass.  I obliged and handed her a ballpoint pen. She thanked me. I told her it was my pleasure.  As I walked away, I turned back around and asked her if she would add a name for me to her prayer list.  She said it would be her pleasure.
