A Moment of Slowing Down / by Emerline Ji


As I paused to snap this photo, a tall man in suit slowed down next to me.

"That's Times Square, right?" — Tall Suited Man
"Yea... if you go further down." — Me

Just as the crosswalk counter was about to turn red, I quickly walked onto the sidewalk. And for one long block, we talked about the weather and how we should make more time to experience places we walk by all the time. He said he thought my picture would turn out nice. When we reached the end of the block, we smiled and parted ways.

Wish I slowed down more often.
