i spent the day waiting in the jury duty pool
200+ people, who walked in the door at 8:00am strangers
by lunch time gentle conversations were taking place
after lunch, i sat a watched as a young woman
taught an older woman how to send a text message
they exchanged numbers and then test text messages
amazing, the older woman said!
i thought that was pretty awesome. . .
by 2:30, when we were excused, i wondered how many
new friendships were started during the hours we sat and waited,
even if it was just for the day. . .
