A giant of an individual once shared a seat on the bus with me. We
sat
in silence and watched the road pass by. I had the aisle seat. I have
forgotten where I was going now yet I distinctly remember the smell of
the bus, the bag lady sitting next to us, and the colors of the city I
was in.

The person who was sitting next to me had brown eyes and
hair. They seemed to be of working class origins I noticed the roughness
of the hand that shook mine. It was much like mine. At a stoplight we
watched the cops making there rounds and winced together when the car
was unceremoniously introduced to the truck. "what is this about?" I
remember thinking. What does it mean to be on this bus at this moment
sitting next to this person. I wondered if the person with the brown
hair and eyes would remember me after all doesn't everyone want to be
remembered? Isn't that why we have children or strive for success in
everything we do? Is our mortality also our motivation?

The bus
moved on from that stoplight turned a corner and found it's way onto
the snaky freeway. With the window open I could smell the smog mixed
with the salty smell of the ocean. People all around me were adjusting
getting ready for the long part of their journey. I felt sorry for the
people who were standing hands firmly grasping for the cold metal rod
hanging from the ceiling. There is a conversation that can happen
amongst people even in silence. We speak in a movement, a smell, the
texture of our skin. Whole encyclopedias can be written on the casual
glance of one stranger to another. I adore these moments. I run them
over in my mind long after they have happened.
