    I like your written prelude to this song. I try to do that whenever possible.
    I was in a Chili’s one evening, sitting at the bar with my boyfriend and doing a bit of embroidery work to keep my hands busy. I was making a Red Sox logo. (Forgive me.) A stranger saw what I was doing & really like it. He asked if I would make one for him if he paid me. I told him I would send him the one I was working on for free if he gave me an address. He wrote down a PO Box on a piece of paper. Two days later I mailed it to him with his address as the mailing & return address. (I didn’t want him to feel obligated to thank me.) The only message inside was, “Enjoy and when you see an opportunity, don’t forget to pay it forward.” I always wonder what he must have thought when he received it. I’m sure he never expected me, a stranger, to carry through with my promise.
