At this bus stop

I was asked if the Illinois hoodie I was wearing was from my alma mater. Yes. 

I was asked what I studied. Journalism. 

I was asked if I’m working in that field now.

and when I answered the smile crept across my face and my whole body. It spread into part of myself that I had taken for granted. It reached beyond into the entierty of the evening and warmed it for a moment.

Yes. I replied.

Sometimes it takes an old man in gigantic spectacles and an oversized knit cap to help you see your forest for all the trees you planted from seeds.
