That led into a very sweet conversation with this man named Jim. He was intelligent and very bright. He spoke nicely--borderline beautiful. His language was refined and he spoke as one who legitimately knew what he was talking about. I guess that he was in his late fifties or early sixties.
We talked about life and the experiences that helped to shape us into the men we are today. He asked me if I felt that a janitor meant he was unsuccessful? I told him that I felt just the opposite. "it takes everybody in this world," I told him.
There are some remarkable people. I love the vast knowledge that is had by many who are 'overlooked'.
It was a pleasure to talk to Jim and to hear of his feelings. There are many among us who just need someone to listen. I hope to always be that person.
