I often pass the darkened office
wondering what is glowing, inside.
Today the curtains were open
 and I could see
 a computer screen saver.
A close up photo of
 a little girl laughing
her face a demonstration
of delight.
If it had been a oil painting
and not glowing pixels
she would still have lit that space.
Further on two Asian women
were photographing
an older lady, standing by
an ivy covered wall,
with their tablets.
They showed her the pictures
and her face lit up
with a smile.
At seeing herself,
so quickly
so proudly standing there.
There was joy
and I felt some
stick to me
as I walked by.

This is really happened, this very morning. In about 2 minutes. You have to notice this sort of thing.

That's a nice ode to empathy, A.K.
