Chance Encounters

"You pray and fast

and you walk according to

the word of God"

He startled me in the parking lot at work. He seemed somewhat distressed, but certainly not threatening. He needed to get close enough to deliver that message. He looked into my eyes. His deep brown eyes had a far away gaze. I just nodded, my usual reaction as the flight or fight mechanism registers. He bowed his head once, did an about face and was gone. I wrote the words he spoke to me in one of my spiral notebooks (vampires). When I reread them, I realized what good advice I was given so unexpectedly. Sometimes a chance encounter can be a sacred experience.
