Sometimes the deepest connections I experience are with strangers on the subway. There is this realization that we don't know each other, we'll probably never meet again, so there is only this moment. And all we have is eye contact. We know that words will suffice to say anything in such a short time. We know that this silent witnessing of the other is a divine gift. So we stare intently. We gaze into the truth of the other. And what do we find? We find ourselves looking back.
