Kipper had a couple of conspiracy theories, one of them had to do with suitcases and people disappearing into the garage and NEVER returning. My theory is a little more positive than that.
You know what I think? I think the Universe is a pretty grand place and even in the midst of the crappiest possibly situations there are things and people put in our path to make the crappiest possibly situation a little better.
Every single person I came in contact with Wednesday as I made my way home. Random strangers smiled if our eyes met while passing in the airport. I was exhausted and disorganized in the TSA line up; flailing around with the computer, shoes, sweater. You get the picture: one of those people that make me shift from foot-to-foot and sigh. But the Road Warrior Business Man behind me was very patient and told me not to worry when I apologized for holding him up.
I hope I remember to smile at the strangers I see who are a little disheveled wearing a bewildered and grief stricken face.
