A Blanche Dubois moment....the kindness of strangers. We all have moments, especially if we have small children, when the only solitude might just be a trip to the store, while everyone else is safe and engaged. Then in the privacy of the family car we might be the person we have always been, the person just learning to drive, a new college grad out for a ride, realizing what took you to this moment, also comes with the full weight of all you carry and Stopping by the Store on a Snowy Evening is not quite the moment Robert Frost described.

Interesting. Today I emailed a free category Craigslist poster that offered to buy gas for needy people for the holidays. (single parents, and so forth) to give them an atta-boy. You leave an identifier at the gas station you wish to use, and they will drop payment. Then they go fill up. Apparently that is a Christmas thing that has happened here before. There are some amazingly compassionate people in this world.
