thank you

i’d like to take this opportunity to personally thank the woman and her child who smiled at me at the airport, when there were so many who, for whatever reasons, could not. I’d like to honor their contributions to my spirit and for my waking me out of my worker/commuter stupor.

it is for them that i write this post. it is their memory that has inspired me to write these words, when there were far too many other words i did not have the wherewithal or even the ethos to write.  out of the few words that i do happen to know, i have selected some of the highlights and arranged them for you.

but please, do not feel obliged to thank me. the only thanks I ask is to one day offer the same to you as you offered to me. I don’t know when that day will be, but hopefully some time before Columbus Day. I’ve already added it to my calendar. I hope you can wait that long.

I know there is one other person I be remiss in not thanking. And that would the one follower of my blog who is an actual blogger, and not a robot or an online retail store in need of traffic. For you, dear blogger/reader, you have made my stay here more meaningful in ways I could not imagine.

 

About The Lost Pedestrian

In my wanderings throughout the moments/days/years, I try in earnest to find the mystical within the mundane and the mundane within the mystical, oftentimes confusing one from the other. I have wandered and roamed through many a city, many a town, in a state of wonder and bewilderment, without necessarily going anywhere. I am easily lost, but eventually found. (I am guessing you have just found me). My sincere hope is that you will find Something in this warehouse of thought, memory and false memory, words, numbers, tangents, murmurs, echoes (lots and lots of echoes), voices, dreams, and other paraphernalia.
