Being open to opportunities for positive engagements is a personal goal for this project. So many people have so much to give and are really just looking for ways to spread that energy to others. Last night, a week before I begin peddling, I'm with Connie, my hairdresser, getting a REALLY close cut. (Yes, she knows it's gonna be a few months until the next visit.)
At the end of the appointment she asks if it would be ok to offer a prayer asking for Divine protection, strength, and blessings while I'm riding. I've never experienced this spiritual spontaneity at any time before in the middle of a business, during work hours, in such a public setting. That is such an honor to have someone extend such an act of kindness in such a loving way. I am so blessed.
