I am on my way to meet Alma after about a month and a half. Driving from Ohio to Arkansas for Elisa’s wedding. This is my first rest stop and as I took some photos of the rest stop, a young lady came up and strikes up a conversation. She is in a bad situation, a photographer, particularly into nature photography, her and her boyfriend are driving to Colorado having stopped at rest stops throughout.
It’s interesting how many people we pass by, especially considering the chances for us to actually meet any single human being of the millions on this planet. It was a refreshing conversation and despite her sad story, she had a pleasant demeanor and simply wanted to say hello and meet a new person on her trip.
I cannot wait to get to Alma, but before I take a little nap, I wanted to write this and encourage everyone to make some time to say hello to someone else on a journey alongside theirs.
