WHERE I AM

IN MY MIND & OUTSIDE OF THE WORLD



A  little excerpt...

"ONE DAY, AS I STOOD IN A RESTAURANT WAITING FOR MY TAKEOUT, I WATCHED THE MAN IN FRONT OF ME.

HE WAS IN BIB OVERALLS AND DIRTY BOOTS.

HE HAD PROBABLY BEEN WORKING ALL DAY IN THE FIELD OR SOMETHING SIMILAR.

I ADMIRED HIS ROUGH HANDS AS HE PICKED UP HIS BAG.

HE THANKED THE SERVER WITH A SOFT, TENDER, YET GRAVELLY VOICE.

I ADMIRED HIS GENUINE SMILE AS HE TURNED AND ACKNOWLEDGED ME AS HE WAS LEAVING.

HE LOOKED TIRED. LIKE THE DAY HAD BEEN LONG.

HE HAD AGE WRINKLES IN HIS FACE AND DIRT LINED HIS EXPRESSION.

BUT HE LOOKED HAPPY, AT LEAST FOR THE MOMENT...."
