Extraordinary encounters

Every few days or so I encounter someone extraordinary.

I’m living in Korea, and my Korean language skills are limited, but that doesn’t prevent me from recognizing unusually compassionate, funny and peaceful people.

The way they warmly greet me, react with tenderness, or the way their eyes sparkle when they speak.

They each impress me as someone who has had plenty of challenges in life, but these challenges made them sweeter and more loving, rather than bitter.

In a nutshell then, that’s the mission. Will we become heavier and more harsh, or will we become lighter and gentler as time goes by?
