"We had one of those almost collisions complete strangers have. We stopped and stood there so as not to collide. It happened so fast, barely time to react. Still there was time. It happened in an instant yet time stopped all together. 10:00 AM on April 2nd. ‘Excuse me,’ and like that, our paths diverged. What an intense brief moment in life. I can still recall the color of your hoodie, the color of your gloves, your cup of coffee, the fact you weren’t wearing a jacket, the streetwise seller, and the sun before the rain."
