1. Thank you for the flowers in the flower stand on the way home.
2. Thank you for the man who tells me their names.
3. Thank you for the names of the flowers.
4. Thank you for the pink rose.
5. Thank you for the act of kindness: a gift between strangers.

To say that an uninterested act of kindness in Mexico City is close to miraculous would mean that I have nearly lost my faith. I won't lose my faith! Thank you!

what will i do when i am in the ham?.... perhaps i shall drive by your old apt and imagine i'm sitting on the porch eating blackberry pie and ice cream... i wish there was a way i could call you back when i miss your calls. other than skype, which i constantly forget to check to see who's on! i leave for the airport in about 10 hours... have i packed? mmmm, no. who's your secret rose sender?
