Stranger on a Bus

January 11, 2019

The best people I have ever met live quiet lives.

They hide out in the smallest corners of the world.

Behind piles of paperwork, heaps of scrap metal, and under the false misidentification of “commoner.”

These people work in office supply, car parts, or seemingly have no job at all.

They listen when you speak. They offer unabridged feedback about the world, free of any judgment or bias.

They tell is like it is.

They spend their time, day in and day out, in the same offices, the same park benches, the same restaurant tables.

The same dusty shelves line their office walls.

The same fluorescent lights beam down on them as they work.

And yet, despite all the seemingly mundane, unimpressive nature of their presentation, these people are the salt of the earth.

They have hearts of gold and share it without making it obvious.

Only those who watch them can see.

These people make you excited to have car trouble, because it means a trip to your favorite mechanic.

These people brighten up the world around them simply by existing, by showing up, and by revealing their true nature without fear or worry of acceptance.

These people are the true enlightened ones of our time.
