Giving Life Jen and John Speak

Giving Life

I used to take the subways to work in New York City. With music between my ears, I could only see faces, rows and rows of faces and most of them looked like they were daydreaming about being somewhere else. Over time, I would see the same people, wearing the same clothes, doing the same things. But one day, this one person looked different. She dressed differently, she stood instead of sitting and she was focused on the present. The next day she made eye contact and stood right beside me. And that’s when I saw a slip of a hand written note with the beginning of a poem. To do something that frees your imagination, that taps your inner resources, and to think beyond the norm is to give yourself life.
