Rushing Pass Life

Another beautiful entry from the life of Alex Billings. Nope, not a big story about another award winning performance or being applauded with screen stars or lunching with someone famous. Just a story about going to a 7-11 for coffee.
This story reminds us that there is so much around us we can miss by being so busy and self absorbed. Missed most of all, people. People who can bring something to our lives even though they are not in our lives. People easy to ignore and pass by with no eye contact and for heaven's sake no chatting or touching.
One of the greatest things about Alexandra Billings and about her writing, whatever the subject, is that she prompts us to stay in touch with our humanity. Nothing can be more important.
