Christmas Reflections 2014

Christmas came gently this year through many exquisite moments.  Here are just a few of them:

1. Subway Brother

Peter and I were going through a subway turnstile a few days ago.  As I went through first, our shared metro card ran out.  Peter searched through his wallet.  A bedraggled man who had observed us, stepped up to Peter, took out several metro cards from his pocket and said, “Man, I just want to help you.  Here.”  And he swiped one of his cards for Peter to pass through.  Peter thanked him and offered to pay, but the man just laughed and said, “No, man, I just want to help.”

They looked each other straight in the eyes, shook hands and grabbed each others’ shoulders.  A hearty thank you from Peter, and they said goodbye.  We smiled and said, “Ah, New Yorkers.”  But what we really felt and acknowledged was “There goes the child of God!”  It was a Christmas moment.
