Yesterday, I took the train from my home in Orange County to Chatsworth to visit my son and his family. At the L.A. train station, a twenty-something girl sat down beside me. I was working on my novel and paying her little attention until she began to speak on her phone. From her conversation, I learned that she was a creative writing major at Chapman University and working on a novel, so, of course, we had to chat.
She reminded me so much of myself, and yet, our life experiences were totally different. Still, I was touched that God or circumstances would bring us together for even such a short time.
