My friend Pat got me this bag for my birthday, or maybe for Christmas, a few years ago. I do love it. It is the perfect overnight bag, allowing for just the right amount of clothing and toiletries and yarn. In addition, when I take it on the bus I am a bit more confident that no one will steal it or look through it. No one wants to mess with that much Jesus.

The other day Amy and I were riding our bikes in Soho and a homeless person had the very same bag, on the front of her gigantic cart of things, I have a feeling protecting her as well. And all of a sudden, for a brief moment, I remembered how humanity–all of us, are all connected.
