Multi-sensory learning, libraries, religion, pot-luck dinners, story-telling, walking, then biking on the same road I went walking, then taking the bus on the same road I went biking, then flying in an airplane over the same place I took the bus, then walking down that street again with a friend.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

One time I was walking in the cold. I didn't have gloves and my hands were numb. I was almost in tears. An old lady saw me. I did not even notice her at first. I was in such agony. She handed me her gloves and walked away before I could thank her. Just knowing that people look out for each other meant the world to me. Now I try to live like her and take notice of the people around me.
