I met a strange person in a small Thai restaurant this evening. She asked me if I felt all of the energy that was about lately. I said "I don't know, ...maybe."

Calmness was all about her, and she had a warm smile that made me want to keep looking at her, absorbing her tenderness.

She said "It's there if you pay careful attention. It actually wants to be found. Once you find it, you can turn it into any emotion you want, just by thinking the smallest of thought."

She smiled at me and softly touched my wrist. I wished I could hear the song that was in her eyes as she turned and glided out the door.

(This is based on a true event but, not all true -- I was a story that mostly popped into my head.)
