small kindnesses

small kindnesses
My small kindnesses are helping those with heavy luggage who forget they can use lifts/elevators at train stations. Also, I allow people to leave the train by not blocking them, as so many others do. Plus anyone smaller than the crowd, I make sure they can get onto a train first, and be able to put away any luggage, and find a nice seat, as I'm a big man I can discreetly block,  and so protect those less able.

Being big, I suppose, is like always having a room with a view. Your kindnesses carry us on your shoulders for the largest view of all. Thanks for a terrific haibun, travel and all. ~ Donna
