Slow Down!

I was rushing to catch the train at Grand Central Terminal this morning (story of my life…) And when I approached the escalator, there was this elderly gentleman standing right in the middle of it. My first impulse was to say “excuse me” and continue my rush frenzy. Instead, I stood behind him and thought about grandmothers and grandfathers. How their presence makes us slow down (it’s a good thing folks), put a pause to the anxiety of everyday life and listen, really pay attention to what they have to say. Or just stand behind them on an escalator when we’re rushing to go to work so that they can teach us a lesson. Thanks Grand Central Terminal-Grandpa.
