On my way to work today, as I was walking to the station, a woman overtook me, and some energy she gave off was soothing. I felt the muscles in my face relax, and my spirits lift a little. I saw the quick and energetic way she walked, the brightness of her skin, the sheen of her hair, and the way she clothed herself comfortably with tan thai pants and a green tank top.
She passed me on the pedestrian bridge, and as she turned to descend from the bridge, I saw her in profile, and saw that she had a smile on her face.
I realized then that her entire body was smiling.
