human responses


The last leg of my trip home from visiting Austin involved a 45 minute train ride.
Next to me sat a guy around my age.
To the left of him stood an old man,
who insisted we stay put and he stand.

As the train began to move, it jerked us from side to side
I caught the guy next to me hand shoot immediately up in the air
right behind the old man.
ready to catch him should he fall.

His response was so very human.

it made me smile
and i think it made my heart grow 3 times bigger.
