wednesday november 19

today i was walking down lansdowne street on the first real snow day of the year when an older woman walking in the opposite direction slipped and fell on the sidewalk. her fall was so impactful that somehow her shoe came flying off and landed right in front of me. after i picked it up and brought it over to her, a couple other passers-by and i made sure she was alright and got her back on her feet and on her way. as i resumed my walk in the same direction as one of the others who had helped out, my fellow good samaritan laughed and remarked "that was kinda scary!" in a way that made me think we were both kind of relieved we hadn’t been required to do more.
