Classes, choir, church, camp, work, parties, school, uni, On the beach, on holiday, traveling, on planes, trains and buses, in the market, nowhere but walking through everyday life. There is an opportunity to connect with others.
When I think of those fleeting moments. Where I have 'connected' with people throughout the world, across my life I smile. Deep inside me I feel thankful for what I know have been divine encounters.
Some meetings are fleeting. Moments of conversation which live in my soul.
I recall the man on the airplane. As I was heading to a filler job, in a new country with someone Id never met. Nerves fluttered in my tummy. I'd just given up 'a respectable' career with one of the most profitable places in the world. I didn't know what the future held. What was about to happen? All I knew was I'd made my decision & I hoped it was the right one. Quietly I knew it was. Outwardly I was petrified
This stranger & I had an intense conversation. Thrown together on a plane for a limited period. He told me of his illness & his braces with death, his family, his hopes, his dreams & I listened. This highly successful professional man needed someone to talk to. I didn't say much but I remember him saying to me.
'Nicky it will work out. You are creative, beautiful & able to ride this adventure. Don't give up your dreams.' and with that we left the airplane.
A tiny connection. A profound statement.
There are many more stories like this in my life & yours too. Just look for them & smile.
