whatever you do to the least of my brothers
many years ago now, i was in a destitute state. had recently suffered a divorce, and was very unsure of my own direction. i lived in a mid sized town in west michigan, and my encounter was not direct, but rather directed. i was walking down the street, and as usual in my own state. it was january or february, and very cold. my pace and gate were direct and focused. i was going home. i'd just finshed work for the day. i had no car, no money yet to speak of, and i my my left shoulder was pulled back. pulled hard enough to make me stop and turn. i looked down, and there was this old man (must've been like 60) no coat, on a day that i recall being near zero. in short i didnt live that far away, i gave him my coat. (i had others) the last $10 i had, and the rest of my pack of smokes.
i guess that by itself doesnt say much, but when i got home, i was standing in my kitchen making whatever it was i had. (probably mac and cheese or something) and i felt "lifted" like someone was holding me up. i felt weightless. it was weird, and i wouldnt have given it much more thought except that i kept hearing "thank you" it was like a whisper, and no matter which direction i turned it was always behind me. well, in short, my opinion will always be that it was a directive and a choice. i was given a car the next day by a freind who was moving out of state.
